If it would work, the system would send a negative voltage to the leds, which only allow current flow to flow in the positive direction, so they should block the light.

Just suggesting..

Also noteable, that the kindle does the light in 8 bits, or 256 intensities. So far they only use 254 on yours. Perhaps you can get it to work brighter than the stock settings by modifying the values!
Blocking the light, very funny. It complains if you try sending a negative number - well not complain, but cap it beetween 0 and 255. If you send one too big it goes to 255. and the difference from 254 to 255 is not even visible.

And yes, the way to turn the light of is by changing the number to 0. Just like on the first page of this thread. I don't think it will be a good idea to use a different light level for the trigger to turn off on wakeup.* It is a cosmetic reason first, as the screen will turn on and flicker right off. I tried it on level 24 and it was pretty annoying. The other reason not to make it customizable is user-error. Right now it just checks if a file is there or not, but I don't intend to check for every possible mistake you can make by having to configure it inside that file. It also goes hand in hand with other things on the Kindle like USE_ALT_FONTS - same basic principle.

*It would not be a problem, it checks the lightlevel right now to make sure that it only activates at level 0.
