Before sleep...take screenshot and copy into screensavers..help needed

hi all, i would like to make a simple hack or modify the existing ss hack to do the following:

On auto or manual sleep:

1. take screenshot of current page (launchpad can do this with 3xshift)
2. copy or move this file from root into linkss/screensavers
3. kindle will use this file as screen saver (folder will be empty and filename fixed to 'screensaver'.png

kind regards

Wouldn't this be terribly confusing? You couldn't tell whether the Kindle was turned on or off!

2.5. Reboot Kindle (because the current ss hack requires a reboot after changing images).

that's only if files are added or removed from the ss folder i think (to re-index them).

if you keep a fixed file called 'screensaver'.bmp in there and replace it the screensaver should update ok.

confusing? possibly, but i've always wanted my kindle to do this on sleep. i use it to read allot of sheet music and have one page open sometime for hours at a time when i practice. the sony readers offer this option as standard i think.

First you should find a way to use a *.bmp file as a screensaver. The problem is that screensaver hack does not support .bmp files.

There is a thread literally about five topics down that does just what you're looking for. It's called ssknap.

you may have better luck with just hacking to stop it from going into sleep mode. I think there's a way. Search this forum or google.

No need to hack for this (at least on Kindle 3)
just enter this commands on home.( You can open the search bar by pressing to del button.) Then
Code:
;debugOn
~disableScreensaver
;debugOff
