Default Display- and Hold-Question


so i know the display turns off when you put the zen into hold-mode, but is it possible to make the display turn off even when its not on hold? like it will dim first and after a few seconds or so, it should turn off.

another possibility to achieve what i'm looking for would be to make the hold-mode able to react to button pushed.

my old player had the ability to set up what button should stay useable in hold-mode.
i'd like to use the next/previous sond and volume-buttons while i'm in hold-mode.

i dont really like how the screen just dims after a few seconds. i mean, its not a real "problem", its just that i'd rather have the screen turned off and still be able to do basic things...

In short... No, you can't get the display to turn off completely unless you put the player in lock/hold mode. And then you can't use any buttons.

I'd love it too if the display blanked completely after a while with no button presses... just like cellphones, PDAs etc (and other media players). I'm sure it would save a lot of power.

The next best solution is the wired remote - you can lock the Zen (and blank the screen) but still control playback/volume via the remote.
