Touch Screen Clean Mode (Implemented)

66
Now Implemented!

Description

The 17″ screen picks up a lot of finger prints, and many of us carry a small microfiber cloth to take care of things.  the problem is, many times various features will activate as the screen senses a touch.  I suggest a button that simple blanks the screen and disables touch for 30 seconds (or another user-definable time).  Although rebooting the screen does something similar, it’s not ideal.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Should be an easy software option.

Workaround 1: Use a thicker cloth, such that it doesn’t pick up you touch events. Folding over the cloth 4 times should be enough.

Workaround 2: Use our Dark Screen web app, and set full-screen to get most of the display touch inactive (except very top and very bottom).  The dark screen also makes it easier to clean.

Status

Available with version 5.0+ software.

This suggestion is closely related to Blank-Screen option for Display. Maybe the two should be merged and votes accumulated?
