Tweak sleep/screensaver timeout on Kindle 3
I've seen a few questions regarding the possibility to change timeout for activating screensaver and putting Kindle into sleep mode. For me personally, default 10 minutes are too short.
Maybe it was mentioned here somewhere, but I was not able to find any relevant information.
So, if you want to change that timeout, just edit file
And a small remark: I don't like using word jailbreak with Kindle. This word comes from Apple world and is not really relevant to Kindle. Proper word would be root or rooting.

Someone had posted a "jailbreak" to do this but removed it for some reason (potential problems?). So another bin file might be nice.

Yep, because the framework is real bitchy about that, if the file isn't exactly formatted, you've got a shiny new brick (unless you have a serial/early enough SSH access)! \o/
Too risky for a 'user-friendly' configurable version, even with a bind mount.

Thanks for this small howto. I was trying to get a longer timeout on my Kindle 3 and thanks to you I've got it the way I want.

Change the screensaver timeout using Launchpad shortcuts
For those interested, here is how you can change the screensaver timeout via Launchpad shortcuts. I just took Rastik's initial idea, as well as a script from pilotdrh2003, and figured out a way to change the time you want to have before it goes to screensaver.
By the way, check out this thread, as it further addresses the issue regarding whether or not you can have the screensavers rotate on a timer while asleep. Unfortunatley, it doesn't seem like it is possible.
