Would you be willing to share that trick with the rest of us?

Re: New Firmware: L2R.1.6A - How to Find Screen Saver Mode?

Fri Feb 24, 2012 2:24 pm

I am posting here in an attempt to comply with the 'post in an existing thread' policy and the very first posts in this thread mention a "Screen Saver" mode that is accessible under

My Blink shows 2.0.20120112 E1.10 as its firmware version. I believe this is up-to-date for 2/24/12. My unit was swapped out earlier this month. It shows an uptime of ~22 days.

As I write, I am connected via intranet to the Blink. I cannot find a menu item under Settings that looks remotely like something that would trigger a screen saver mode. Was this a feature of an interim firmware release that was subsequently dropped? If not, where do I find it?
Thanks,

Did you look at the interface on the unit? I was surprised it wasn't a setting in the web GUI.

Thank you Queen Bee.

That's what I get for being lazy and trusting the intranet. We set the display to "make the display inactive after 5 minutes." Am I correct in concluding that the unit screen will now 'go dark' 5 minutes after any interaction, i.e., plug-in, disconnect, touching of the unit screen, or perhaps even checking via the intranet.
Thanks,

Yep exactly, and it seems random events as well. I'll see my screen on sometimes when nothing has happened to it :)

Are most of us Blinkers on rev 2.0 by now? Mine is still at 1.8. It's working reliably enough (finally), but you know... early adopter here... I'd like to have the new software.

Got 2.0 a few days ago, don't see any major changes. As long as it will continue charge without hiccups these firmware updates are pointless.
