Howto turn off screen while charging?

Anyway to turn off the screen when the player is charging?  It's a big waste of electricity having the screen on when it's doing nothing but chargingRobot Sad

Sort of irrelevant, but I wouldn't really call it a "big" waste of power. A tiny LCD screen like that doesn't use more than a few watts.

I agree it's not a big waste but it surely is pointless.

 

Wouldn't charging go faster with the LCD turned off?

 

Of any component of a diskless music player, the screen surely is the biggest power consumer.

 

(Without suggesting this as a reason to switch, I think Rockbox has this issues nailed. When you move the slider to the 'hold' position, the screen turns off.)

Yes it would.....wall charger can accomplish this for just a few dollars....well worth the investment, as it also lets you listen while you charge.

Screen turns off after one hour when USB connected.  Also ,  on the AC charger or dock,  the screen turns off in seconds during charging.
