Black out screens

Probably won't make much difference but how about an option to black out the screens to save some battery?

Yes I bielieve it does, backlighting is often the most current consuming part of an embedded system. As an example I am developing a handheld device at work with a display and the backlight consumes more than 100 times the current of the display driver chip.
Good idea!  :)
