K5 How to keep kindle alive? without physical touch? (using xdotool)

Ok, my mistake... when i meant sleep, i meant screensaver. in my setup (yes thanks again twobob, you helped me a lot!) I will be reading, and then eventually the screensaver will turn on, and the screen will go dark. if i was physcially pressing the screen, (i'm not sure how exactly but) the kindle receives that the screen was touched and so resets the timer that the screensaver will show. using the way i read books, this does not happen. i did not think i wanted to disable the screensaver, i knew this was a possibility, but i still want the screen saver to happen, just, when i am not using the device. when i am turning the pages via ssh, the kindle things i am not using the device.

OK - I really, really hate to rain on this mornings parade, but . . . .

K5 Collections Manager

The problem is that physical entries (i.e., document files, and their sidecar entries) are an entirely different story again, and need to be treated completely differerently than collections. For instance, there is the full-text index, which indexes physical files. While I did think about a whether a "two-way synchronization" could be done (and would have implemented it if it were sure to work), there is a reason why I only created an "import", but not an "export" feature: collections are completely "virtual", in the sense that they don't impact the file system in any way.

Providing an equivalent "export" option (sort of the "inverse function" of the import option) would modify files and directories all over the place, potentially leading to a complete misbehaviour of the Kindle (yes, I've seen it happen, by simply creating 1000 text files inside the documents folder). Importing or exporting JSON is, of course, no problem at all. Ooops... fixed . How to recover my Kindle root password?

Right now, I'm showing both: Root PW fiona123 (or possibly fiona1234) Should I keep on doing that, or just drop the 9 chars password, or implement a config switch to specifically ask for the 9 chars one (and default to showing just the correct 8 chars one)? So far, all default root passwords have been DES hashes (8 chars). If somebody changed their password, it would become salted MD5, which supports more characters. There are a lot of people here who insisted that I was wrong when I started saying that the kindle default root passwords only used 3 hex digits, but I inspected all the shadow files on all my devices, and in posted images, and they were ALL DES hashes.
