i have no issue with keeping it plugged in 24/7. so i'm not worried about power saving at all. as it is, e-ink screens are the least power hungry screens available.

as an alternative, i currently use an old android phone with a clock app set with always on display. there's no sim card and it's connected to my home wifi. it's also constantly plugged in for power. i use "Big Digital Clock" by andreas1724 (free on the google play store and currently at version 1.1.1) for this purpose. it's also ad free. no more adjusting any clock in the house twice a year to get the time right.

i'm not the developer nor am i promoting this app in any way. i just like it because
1. it's free
2. it's ad free
3. display color is completely customizable (not limited to a few pre-determined colors)
4. it's simple (just displays the time, 12/24 hour with or without seconds).
5. it will also prevent the screen from going to sleep (blacking out).
