Backlight intensity scheduling

  • I reently switched to using wake on touch and realised that it sometimes wakes up when you move your wrist as well (even with wake on twist turned off).

    This got me thinking...

    I only really want the backlite to work outside of daylight hours. What would be useful would be to change the backlight intensity to 0 during daylight hours and a present during the nightime. I think this would save a lot of power. The schedule could be calculated from sunrise / sunset, we have a module for that.

    Any idea's how this could be done in such as way that it is an add on ?
    I have also noticed that you cant set the LCD backlight to OFF , that 0.1 intensity is the smallest setting.

  • Would the quiet mode scheduling work? Maybe you could enable backlight in quiet mode and disable it outside of that time.

    Or are the hours different? I think it'd just be a matter of adding a bit of boot code for it
