Has anybody found a way to disable exhibition mode ? I don't want to turn the TP off, I'd prefer to to keep the display on with ubercalendar displayed instead.
There are at least two threads already (links below) on disabling exhibition mode, search is your friend. As far as displaying ubercalendar, I don't see that option on mine, just agenda. Glimpse is an option so maybe could do it with glimpse.
Have you switched to only using CFL's or LED lights all over your home? If not, then you probably have much bigger electricity hogs to deal with than the Touchstone charger which I suspect uses at most $2-$3 worth of electricity on an annual basis (I just plugged in my Kill A Watt to verify). Complain about Exhibition Mode and its configurability if you must, but the amount of electricity that it genuinely wastes is negligible for the typical high-tech household.
Just to follow up, after trying to keep the Touchstone as active as possible, and keeping at least one TouchPad on it at all times, after 72 hours, it had drawn 0.30 kwh, which works out to about $6.50 for a year.
Long time user of the pre minus, trying to find my way around the apps/patches of the touchpad, and was wondering if there was a way already to do what I wanted. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
I ended up going with glimpse, and just using the glimpse browser to load up my google calendar through the web. that way I actually get the real data (rather than all the sync'ing with the webos calendar), I can use it with exhibition, and it's more useful than the limited "agenda" exhibition view.
