Manual Sleep Mode

This might have been requested already, but it would be nice to be able to put the console to sleep manually. Maybe I could assign a trackball button to be it...or Pig+trackball button.

One step further would be to have a button that can turn off the desk lamps when needed...like when I'm watching a DVD, without having to hold Open and use a parameter wheel.

    Scott,

    Surely if you have time to watch a DVD then you have time to hold OPEN and scroll the encoder...:poke:

    Ha. That's too much work. Actually what I usually do is run some dim leads to the console and rig my own work lights for the desk. Then it's just a simple bump of fader 10 to turn them on or off. Now, what about a manual sleep ability?

    People who don't use Cool LEDs for Hog Desklight should be shot :fgd:

    But if you want....

    I would love to design you a very futuristic NEW road box for your console and I'll make sure to install LED desk lights in it.

    Anyway... :hijacked:

    I can't believe there is post about desk lights that doesn't address the obvious thing intensity factor...

    I wish some day, some way, there would actually be a difference between 1% and 100% on the backlight intensity :P

    I tell ya what though. How about you Hoggies just keep working on color coded palettes instead and I'll be happy.

    Scott,

    Manual sleep is a good idea, but not likely to get implemented anytime soon. There are so many other requests that are a higher priority. However you can just go into your preferences and set the backlight time to zero, then press OK. only three or four button presses....

    Yeah I thought about that. I realize there are far more important fixes and additions to the Hog software than this idea, but that's all it is, an idea.
    I just thought I'd post it here and leave it at that. I'm sure that the things that are at the top of the 'To Do' list are things that I can't wait to see. Keep up the good work.

    No worries Scott.

    We love ALL suggestions from users as they provide valuable information and often spur even further ideas. I also enjoy "messing with you" in regards to your requests for comfort features related to the "slow" nature of your business.

    I hope you and your family have a great holiday.
