Sorry to be a bother.
Mobad's latest pastie is _really_ close : ) And you always have [Alt][G] if things really get bad...

Confirmed; because the eInk controller is left in a funny mode - and then possibly the kindle is putting the eInk panel into a deeper state of sleep before the script gets a chance to refresh it.

My GF doesn't like the fadeout to white - she prefers the previous algo (which _I_ still can't make work like this : ) and then we get too dark screensaver instead of too light

So maybe give the user a choice between dark refresh and light refresh; wonder if one works better on non-k3s?

A thought about Mobad status disabler... I would be interesting to see some benchmarks on the eInk... does it take longer to change the screen from full black to full white then to go from 25% to 0? Visually yes, but can the display actually be updated quicker? What if you only change one pixel, does it take the same time as the whole screen? I wonder if we could eek a microscopic performance improvement by only updating the center 580x780 with an AreaRefresh? Not that it'd be worth the trouble mind you...
