I think you actually use it to do that, if you’re on a Paperwhite 4 or Oasis.

Invert black and white is not a property you can set in Theme. You have to go to Accessibility Settings to toggle it on and off.

Does anybody, anybody at all know how to make a theme "stick" when the damned Oasis goes to screensaver mode? I mean, what is the POINT of the bloody themes, if they turn off every time the thing goes to sleep?????

FWIW, this is not an issue on my 2 Paperwhites. And i presume if this were an issue in general, we would have had other similar reports prior to yours.

Have you tried Restart?

I do not. I set them up when it came out and found it 'fun' to mess around with, but never find them that useful since I tend to forget and leave current settings

That's basically the way I look at it.

Yes, of course.

I like to set a given font size, and the time remaining feature; that's about it. It's a "theme." If the blanking thing goes to sleep, then it "forgets" the theme and I have to reset it. I never, never had this problem with my Voyage or my PPW. Drives me nuts.

Well, that's nice, but I get tired of resetting the freaking time left in whatever, or the like, every time I open the freaking thing.

It boggles me that so-called "tech support" for Kindles at Amazon seems to be clueless about this as well. 99.99% of what I do with a Kindle of any stripe (eInk, Fire, reading app, etc.) is around my business, natch, but as a reader, it would be nice if I could make it do ONE bloody thing. It's almost ironically embarrassing.

This doesn't happen on my Oasis. Not either of them, actually (I have the 2 and the 3). The only thing I could suggest would be to do a factory reset?

Do you use a custom theme, or one of the stock themes?

Custom. I have a few, actually, depending on what format the book is in, what time of day it is, etc. I tried it with all of them, and my settings stayed the same no matter how many times I put the device to sleep and woke it up.

THAT is really weird. Hmph. This Oasis is relatively new. Well...maybe a reset is required. Bugger.

Thanks for the info.

Hi Hitch--I'm curious as to whether or not the reset helped?
