In an effort to help users reduce battery usage while having their phone docked, I would like to introduce a new beta app called Sleep Mode.
This app allows you to put the phone into a pseudo-sleep mode by tapping on the Sleep Mode icon. You can exit sleep mode by tapping anywhere on the screen or pressing any hardware button.
While in sleep mode, the screen brightness is reduced to a minimal level and since it is running the foreground, (but not actually doing anything) it will pause all activities in apps like CarHome Ultra.
- Start sleep mode by tapping the Sleep Mode icon
- Reduces the screen brightness to a minimal level
- Turns off back-lit keys
- Pauses all activity in CarHome Ultra and other apps that do not have background services
- Exit Sleep Mode by tapping anywhere on the screen or pressing any hardware button
This is beta (experimental) software, use at your own risk.
