In menu/settings/themes/powersaver I have to tick one of three options (time/date, text or animation). Whichever is ticked I get at least the clock in powersaver mode. Events show under the date (or text if you choose text) so keypad locked has a symbol, missed calls have a number (of missed calls) and a symbol and so on.
However I have also noticed the screen is totally blank after a while and pressing a button starts the powersaver cycle again - briefly showing the dark main screen (including missed call message etc) before showing the clock with the symbols for a short while again. The time it takes to enter powersaving mode is in the display settings but I can't see a setting for how long it shows for.
Why the clock etc doesn't stay I do not know - I presume even this would eat the batteries more than strictly necessary. I can't see any option to keep it but it may there somewhere!!
I have also noticed this, and I have set up the option of showing time/date in powersaver menu.
But, as you said, after 2 minutes it goes in to the "deep power saver" mode - and shows => nothing. and that is really annoying - to see if I have a missed call or SMS, I have to "wake up" the phone - so far it was enough to look at it.
does someone knows how to avoid/change this setting??? Anyone?? is this ment to be this way?
I think the only way would be to turn off the power save mode completely - not a great idea with most phones these days as the high def colour screens use a lot of power so doing this will dramatically reduce your time between charges.
I installed cClock and it seems to be working pretty good it displays a big clock and any other information you need ... but it dose have a strange effect once ever 60s (I think this is related to the time you set for the power save mode) it starts up the display (no backlight) and then reenters the cClock screen saver ... I guess this is the only way to keep something on the display at all ... at least Nokia decide to update the firmware with an option to stop that deep power saving mode
there is no way to change that black out screen, this is a new way being used by nokia to save power, even the mighty Black N82 does the same, and i can see a big difference in the power management...
the cClock solution i think will work, albeit be prepared to have a shorter battery life, there is even a java app that produces a huge analog clock that i have used at one point but i totally dumped that cause it was a power hog,
to remedy this, i just press the left soft button or power button, this will cause the screen to light up for a moment so i can read the status or even the time...
