auto turn on screen

Postby freak69 » Thu Dec 29, 2011 11:18 am

Bit of a longshot this..

Was thinking about using an ipad2 on a wall mount, and for me, the killer app would be one where I can remotely turn on the screen as if its been touched - i.e.if the phone rings, I want the screen on to display the caller ID. Does anyone know of any way this can be done short of having a small lever touch the screen?

Thanks
Paul

This is not possible unless you jailbreak the device. Even then, there is no perfect solution from an automation perfective.

If you figure it out then I am equally interested as I already have one mounted in the wall.

By the way, if you want to mount one in the wall then it is easy. You can take a regular 8 x 10 picture frame and the iPad shipping box fits in the frame. A little hot glue and a little cutting and you got a frame. Works great.

interesting idea - thanks!

So far, the only way I've heard it done so far is to run a vnc server on the ipad, then connect to it from a PC and simulate a keypress.
