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'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.

Where exactly is that setting feature in LockInfo? Thanks.
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:

Hope this helps :)

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.
