A lot of comment has been made about how Rockbox has improved the unwanted
audible noise during quiet passages of music, although some still remains.
Some say part of the problem has been the writes to/refreshing of the LCD
screen.I do not know if this is true, but if it is, I was wondering if being
able to turn off the screen altogether when you are planning to listen for
an extended time might, therfore, be a good idea. My Clie has this facility
when using the mp3 part of it, in this case it is in order to improve the
battery time as powering the colour screen and playing mp3's greatly reduces
battery life. The function when used puts the unit into hold mode, turns off
the screen but allows the remote to control the basic functions.
