    Anyone know of a Jailbreak Tweak that stops the iPhone's screen from lighting up when you receive a Notification?

    I always have to turn the phone over when its charging at night :D

    I'd actually be very interested in something like this. I know what type of notification I received by the sound it makes so I don't necessarily need the screen to light up, especially when I'm not gonna get it immediately. This is one of the reasons I wish the iPhone had an LED notification light on the front.

    I believe LockInfo offers a setting to prevent the screen from turning on from notifications, but I'm not too certain.

    Yes Lockinfo can prevent the display from waking up upon receiving a notification. This exactly how I have mine set up.

    I don't currently have LI installed but I believe it's in the the plugin settings in LI.

    I'm sure LockInfo is a great tweak, but $8 bucks is steep for that one simple feature if that's all you want like myself.

    Yeah only want the one simple feature, not a bundle of things.

    You need to go into plugins then into each plugin that has notification alerts. Inside each plugin you'll see a toggle for "Wake On Alert". Say goodbye to unnecessary (albeit very minor) battery drain!

    "Wake on Alert" toggle was already set to OFF. Thanks for the instructions.

    Found a tweak that does the job! I just need to enable it before I settle down for the night:

    I've looked into "DoNotDisturb" but it's not exactly what I'd like. Keeping the screen off while still notifying via sounds and having the notifications on the lockscreen whenever I personally wake it would be perfect. My old Moto Cliq used to do the same thing basically. It's not something I need though so I'm not stressing over it.
