This is a technical request, documented in the developer's corner sub-forum (and it was even repeated in a recent post there). Answers with technical details are (sometimes) not welcome here.

Technical questions are fine, but questions about hacks are much better asked in the dev forum.

There are multiple ways to change the screensaver timeout. This way should work on the K4: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2130990

Other methods are shown earlier in that thread.

Also, because every K5 has a touchscreen and every K4 does NOT have a touchscreen, there is no need to add "non-touch" or "NT" after K4. That confusion started when the K4 and K5 were released at almost the same time and there was speculation that K5 was running version 4 firmware so the NT was used to (unnecessarily) distinguish the K4 and K5 from each other.
