In a paging receiver with display capabilities, it is desirable to have a "pager on" indication, however, the current required to allow this indication degrades battery life. Existing products do not allow the option to defeat this feature in favor of improved battery life. This idea provides flexibility to choose between battery life and display-on time for pagers with and without timekeeping capabilities.
