Change Cover to Show in Sleep Mode

I know how to change a cover in Calibre but how do I get the cover to show on the T1 in sleep mode? I know how to change the setting to show cover of last book read, that's not what I mean.

I have a few books who's covers show as text but the actual book as an image cover. For example Discovery of Witches, or Daughters of Witching Hill or Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. I've changed the cover in Calibre to show the image as the cover but when I put the T1 in sleep mode it shows the text cover not the image cover.

How do I get that to change to the image cover? Is there an easy way to do it?

Thanks!

When you set (or change) the cover in Calibre, right-click on the title in Calibre's main listing and choose convert individually, on the screen that opens make sure you have selected EPUB as the output format (top right) and click OK.

You'll be converting an epub to an epub, but that's the only way I found to get the cover changes on my reader.

Calibre can retrieve book covers for you too. Same menu (when you right-click), choose edit metadata and then click download cover.

Are you reconverted ePub to ePub when you changed the cover, right?

You can try to open ePub with Sigil and delete the text cover from ebook.

You can use the Modify ePub plugin to update just the cover (among a lot of other things) without converting from epub to epub.

Cheers,
Simon.

Thank you Simon! I'm a bit late though I already did epub to epub but I like your solution better.

Dum question....can I delete the coverted epub, return to the Original epub fix the cover & modify it with the above plugin or will that really mess things up?

I have found that this doesn't always work and you do need to do an epub to epub conversion. The cover will appear fine using the calibre viewer but not on the reader. I have no idea why and would really like to know

I'm not sure if Calibre kept a copy of the original epub, but if you've still got it lying around I guess there's nothing to stop you adding that as a new format to the current book in Calibre and then running the Modify ePub plugin to add the right cover.

Cheers,
Simon.

Calibre (at least the newer versions) keep an old copy when you do a conversion, it changes the file extension of the old version to something like "original_epub". You can restore the original by right-clicking in the format field when editing the metadata.
