what I would really like to see is a reading mode, where the CPU goes to 
sleep fairly quickly (the faster the wake-up when a button is pressed the 
more quickly it can go to sleep), but the screen doesn't change. only if 
the system is idle for a long time (tens of min) should the cpu wake up 
and decide to dim/blank the screen.
