Is it possible to turn off display of Zire71 whn listen mp3?

by nahidshahin / July 16, 2005 1:11 AM PDT

It seems the display & speaker consume most power of my Zire71.
I am using little head phone which needs less power then before.

But I afraid whether or not it is possible to turn off display at time of listening.

Any one share his experience please.
Is it possible to any model of Zire 31/71/72 ???

Best regards

It already does that.

Do you own one? It dims after the standard timeout or rather the backlight turns off.

Hope this helps.

Ya I have my own Zier71 but I can find any thing to turns off backlight?

I am trying in Palm v.4.5.1P as Perfs -> Power but there is no backlight setup.

Not in prefs.

The real player already does what it can to reduce power. On mine the screen dims.

Assuming you're using Realone Player for Palm

It does it automacitally.

E.g., if in pOS prefs, you set your handheld to auto-off after 30 seconds, then select a track, and if you don't touch any buttons or the screen for 30 seconds, pOS will auto-off your device, turn off the screen, but reaplyaer will continue play the current track and move on to the next through your list of songs.

As u figured by now, u can't do it manually, as pressing the poweroff turns off the screen, but also turns off the MP3 playback.

Also, other mp3 players may have a just-screen-off feature. Another freeware MP3 player for plma is DioPlayer (find using google). Shareware mp3 players include Busker, AeroPlayer, and PocketTunes (they ahve trials and list their features online). You could always email the devs about this feature if need be.

You may want to install a launchher (ther are freeware apps avaialable) so u can quickly and easily (rather than navigating alot of menus) set auto-off in Prefs to 30 secn when playing mp3 and higher doing other stuff
