Great app to turn off the screen

Found this on Freewareppc.com, it turns off the screen so when listening to mp3's or d/l podcasts you can turn off your screen (w/o the registry hack needed to let the media player run with the PDA off). Works great!

Re: Great app to turn off the screen

Which media player are you using? Both WMP and TCPMP allow you to do this already with no extra programs needed.

Re: Great app to turn off the screen

Alright, color me noobish, but the WMP 10.3 (the stock version cooked in with the PPCKitchen I think) shuts off when I toggle my phone off with the "power" button and sometimes will not come out of sleep mode! I checked the options screen and all its tabs and see no toggle to allow it to play in the sleep mode. TCPMP will also pause the music when toggled to sleep. I've also check into all the options pages and see no toggle to remain on when "sleeping". It will always come back on with the toggle unlike WMP for me.

If you know how to allow them to play while sleeping (but not do the reg edits as I live in fear of leaving the music playing and draining the battery to 0% as I'm on call frequently and my phone is my pager) I'd love the info!

Re: Great app to turn off the screen

In windows media player got to the playback screen/ menu/ options/ buttons, the last button map should be toggle screen just assign a button. TCPMP options/ settings/ select page/ hotkeys/ screen on/off, also jus map a button

Re: Great app to turn off the screen

OMG! I avoided looking at the 'details' on those two pages as I didn't think it would be on a button assignment and skipped right over them... Thanks given!
