Hi,

as I don't understand all this memregs/gpio/whatever magic stuff I hope someone can provide me some hint, code or lib
how to disable the screen / backlight for a longer battery run time ?

Thank you

I'm not certain but i messed around with the dingoo for some time and there was a certain file i could changed there to edit backlight intensity. i can't remember if it was in /dev or in /proc maybe the caanoo has something similar ? (although it would have probably needed to be programmed in by gph i think) if there is such file try writing a diffrent value to it. Although i doubt caanoo has such file you never know, it's worth a shot :)

i've looked around, the only thing i was able to find is the old opengph page here: http://opengph.blogspot.com/
yeah i know it's korean, but down the page there are some lines where they enable/disable the LCD.

mplayer has the ability to turn the LCD off when playing MP3's, so it shouldn't be that hard.
