Colour screens require a lot of energy, thus Palm devices with a colour screen usually won't run as long as devices with a monochrome screen. Therefore it is important to find ways to save energy to gain more time with one battery pack or one charge.
Energy Dimmer tries to solve the dilemma between having to choose a small auto-off value and the wish to use a bigger one - without losing more battery power than necessary. It achieves this by implementing a ``dimmer''. That's a mechanism that can be found on (some?) WinCE devices, too (e.g. on the HP Jornada 620). After some time of inactivity, the device will reduce the brightness of the screen, reducing energy consumption significantly.
What's new in this version:
- support for Sony Clie TH55
- button enabling on Treo 600
