Keyboard Power Management
#1
Hi,

I've got my keyboard and it works really great, the keys are OK, even the first row (I need to push a little bit harder but that's fine for me, I'm not a touch typist).

My _little_ concern is about charging (hopefully seems to be a thing of the past).

The keyboard's charger works fine after pushing the famous button but now it charges the phone _continuously_.
Does a method exist to tell the keyboard to stop the phone charging?
I couldn't find anything about this topic, even after reading the _very_ useful Megi's blog.

BTW I'm using the Arch distribution.

Hold down the button on the side of the keyboard for 10-15 sec. If the Pinephone's battery gets fully charged the keyboard should also detect that there is no current being drawn and it will turn itself off.
