Turn off LCD Backlight when idle?

It might be nice if the LCD backlight turned off while idle (no button press, no state chage) for say 1 or 5 minutes.

That would reduce light polution (if installed in an area where that is a concern), plus save power.

Yes, we need this because pedestrians at night are drawn to the device (it's mounted near a public sidewalk) 

Any news on this? I'm mounting mine outside and if it's not charging, I'd rather it not draw attention to itself in the middle of the night. Similarly, it would be nice if the power LED on the WiFi module could be dimmed when idle.

This feature is planned for the next version 3.4 of the WiFi firmware.

Please comment here to let the developers know this feature is desired.
