Out-of-hours power saving for touchscreen controllers

The backlight on a touchscreen controller dims between the hours of 7pm and 7am in the endpoint’s local timezone. When a touchscreen controller is dimmed, it shows a screen saver displaying the time. Touch the dimmed screen to switch the backlight on again. The touchscreen will not dim for one hour after the last time it was touched.

Power saving is automatically enabled for all touchscreen controllers. There is no configuration.
