Subject: Some Ideas...

Ok here I go...

Some of us have our jukeboxes plugged most of the time. There is no use to
turn the unit off while plugged. Actually it's pretty annoying because then
it will get on archos' o.f/w charging mode and have the screen balcklited.
That's what also happens with use of sleep. Although I love this future, I
have to place the jukebox face down so I wont wake by the screen being
light. So what about a mode with minimum energy consumption (something like
cell phones' wait mode)? Sleep timer could be configured to return in this
mode or turn the unit off. The unit won't be switched off so a wake up timer
(that plays a preselected song) is possible too without h/w mods (nice idea
mel).

I know that that sounds like the mode jukebox is while not playing, but
what's the use seeing a playlist when not listening to music? It would be
great if the time was displayed while in the mode I suggested (what about a
bounce-like analog clock?).

I hope you've understood what I'm talking about.

Also resume would be a great feature for sokoban so we won't need to scroll
past 50 levels to get where we left it or have to replay a level all way
from the beginning because we wanted to change a song.

I'm grateful for rockbox and I'm one of those who bought Archos jbr because
there was rockbox.

Thanx,
george
