    Default Can I disable System UI Notifications?

    Greetings:

    I've had my (Verizon) Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.3 (not rooted) for about 3 weeks, and have generally learned how the apps and UI work.

    Here's the issue: the System UI application (v. 4.3-I545VRUEMJ7) posts a notification in the toolbar when the phone is fully charged, saying "Battery Fully Charged, Unplug Charger" If the phone is in standby when this happens, System UI wakes up the phone display, displays the notification, then goes back into standby in 20 seconds.

    When the phone reaches full charge in the middle of the night while the phone is in its dock cradle, the screen suddenly comes on, and then off again in 20 seconds. This is extremely disturbing to us who are sleeping in the same room. Sure, we could relocate the phone, but we want it nearby in case of emergency calls.

    I have set up Blocking Mode to block incoming calls, turn off notifications, and turn off alarms and timers for the period of time we're sleeping, but apparently System UI does not honor Blocking Mode.

    Is there a way to disable or suppress System UI notifications, either all the time (preferable), or at least when the phone is in standby mode?

    Thanks,

    Airpilot

    Thanks. I was afraid of that. Anyone else have any ideas for a non-rooted S4?

    Thanks, Airpilot

    Didn't think of this till now, but I put my phone face down on a soft surface.

    Yup, that'd work. But I bought a dock cradle for it, so it stands up. I could always toss the cradle, but I wuz hoping to not have to do that...

    Thanks again.

    Forgot about the dock part. Sorry.

    OK, this just seems too obvious to even suggest, but ... if it's standing upright in a cradle, couldn't you put a piece of dark cloth or something over it? You could even find something elegant, a black silk handkerchief maybe. The possibilities are endless....
