Request to not flash the display when accu has been fully charged

Had my Jolla lying clearly visible when charging the accu (with an external usb-connector, using my computer, not the official Jolla-charger). It flashed the display once when it was fully charged. Nearly got a heartattack (ok, not exactly...). But it's a bit disturbing. Consider for example the case where one is driving, charges his/hers phone in the car, it's dark, and the phone suddenly flashes... leaving the driver's capability of seeing for a while disabled. A human eye can adapt to different levels of light differently. When the level is suddenly even somewhat growing, it adapts really fast. When the level is suddenly decreasing, it adapts NOT so fast.

I'd say that this is a question of ones personal safety. Would you please consider removing that flash of the display, when the accu is being charged with external sources, and keep it on, when it's not? Its enough that the led changes its state.

There must have been some illogalicities in my writing. I know. I'm a programmer too. And having a friday evening.

Noticed this as well yesterday night... Also nearly got a heartattack.

Maybe I am missing something, but isn't there an equal risk that the phone rings or receives an SMS, and the screen turns on because of that?

In addition, I'd like to be able to disable the LED notification when the battery is charging. It's way too bright for the bedroom at night and starts blinking when fully charged.

I've noticed many brands show this annoying behavior, which has woken me up in the middle of the night on some occassions. Now, I turn the phone around when charging. HTC One S has a very good solution: an unobtrusive LED behind the speaker grill, not very bright and non-disturbing colours. The only recent phone where I didn't need to worry about being woken up in the middle of the night...

thanks for the pointer. However, it's not a viable solution for non-tehnical users like myself. I'd much prefer a setting in the normal Settings interface...
