Has anyone figured out how to reduce the glowlight/screensaver timeout on the Paperwhite?

You posted your question 8 months ago so it's surprising you haven't gotten even 1 response. I looked through all the files in the PW's directories but could not find anything that I thought might contain a line saying something like: "timeout = 10" (I timed it and that's how many minutes it takes.) My search was as "root" so I was even able to get at the files beneath /mnt/us.

There where some recent (within past week or two) posts on adjusting and controlling the time-out values.

Sorry, I don't have any links.
Hmm.... But I seem to recall that NiLuJe commented on some of them, a search of his recent posts might yield a link to the threads.

And thanks for taking the time to find one of the "reply 0" posts here.

Check the powerd kdb keys, it's the t1 timeout. No answers because the elektra+ro rootfs+cramfs combo make this somewhat non-trivial to tweak on the PW, and I try to avoid handing newbies a BFG to shoot themselves with .

Never bothered to check if there was a 'softer' way to tweak it (via lipc?), as was discussed recently, like knc1 said .
