Cool. I can't see ghosting being an issue for something that changes once a minute since it's a small screen and our page turns would clear the screen. Unless someone reads REEEAAAAL slow and then sleep would kick in anyway.

Do screen touches to change pages, enter menus etc. not require the processor to do stuff? I would guess that handling real time clock events once a minute wouldn't be a big deal, power wise.
