does anyone know a way of scheduling a script/program without having to burn the battery the whole night while sleep()ing?
I would think you could setup a crontab entry for this, but I don't know if you would also need to disable the "sleep" mode for this to operate. I guess that would depend if cron will still deal with crontabs while the kindle is sleeping. Does anyone know about this? If not I guess you could try it and see.
