#667 new enhancement/feature request

Wince no deaktivation of screen blanking / Screensaver using SVN 3577

Reported by: killerhippy Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: version 0.6.0
Component: port/wince Version: git master
Severity: Keywords: screen blank screensaver power


SVN 3577 runs fine, but the screen blanking mechanism on my Asus Mypal 636N running Windows Mobile 5.0 is not deaktivated by running navit. Alternative navigation software does so.

This leads to problems. You have to tap on the screen but when doing so, you have to control what has happend, e. g. Windows Mobile start menu opened, or navit menu appeared, or Windows Mobile volume control opened. or...

Please add this function for user convenience, navit should disable screen blanking by default, or to be toggled at the menu (which was the best solution IMHO), or by to be configured at navit.xml.

  • Milestone set to version 0.3.0

Navit has the necessary background code to handle power management (see #282), but not yet for WM.

This is still true. As a workaround, you can tune your energy setup of the device:

  • start->settings->light->batt. power
  • "disable light after idle n secs"

Of course, this will reduce your runtime :/

  • Keywords power added
  • Milestone changed from version 0.5.0 to version 0.5.1

As this is a real annoying lack on this platform, I assign it to the hotfix release 0.5.1
