Hacking kindle to only have one screensaver works like a charm for kindle’s batter life.. lot better than disabling screensaver.
Over the last 6 months, since Windows Phone programming has taken most of my commuting times my Kindle usage has dropped. I do read occassionally though that also stopped when i started reading programming books on it 🙂
What i have noticed is that whenever I start kindle, the battery has been drain and i need to plug it in. All because by default Screensaver runs and keeps changing the displayed picture there by using the battery now and again. Well i tried a few days back and i tried again today to disable the screensaver and it worked this time.
