Show the last page on sleep mode?

Hi, there.
Is there any way to show the last page(not cover) I was reading on sleep mode?

There must be in theory as sometimes my Sage does it erroneously for a few minutes. I don't know of any specific setting or patch.

It's a useful idea for recipes, lists, operating manuals, maps etc.

This feature is available in KOReader, but not the stock reader.

It’s possible to screenshot the last page, then run a Nickelmenu command that moves that screenshot to the /.kobo/screensaver directory.

I don’t know if you have nickel menu installed, but I just loved the challenge and had some time to kill tonight. This is what it came up with:

Call the script this way in NM:
Code:
menu_item:main:Update Screensaver:cmd_spawn:/mnt/onboard/.adds/scripts/ssupdate.sh
chain_always:nickel_misc:rescan_books_full
chain_always:power:sleep
It will run the script below, then put your Kobo to sleep.

I called the script “ssupdate.sh”. You can call it anything you’d like, but I’d recommend tucking the script away in the .adds folder. I created a folder called “scripts”.
Code:
rm /mnt/onboard/.kobo/screensaver/screen_*.png
mv /mnt/onboard/screen_*.png /mnt/onboard/.kobo/screensaver/
It empties the screensaver folder before moving other screenshots there.

Every time you put your Kobo to sleep, it’ll display your last page read, but if you take other screenshots, they’ll also end up in the screensaver folder. I don’t know how to grab only the most recent screenshot yet.
