Grovepi - turning off LCD Backlight in python

Is there a way to turn off LCD Backlight in python.
I plan to be running on solar, ever watt is a valuable commodity !

Hi @chris3,

Do you have an Arduino?. There are these two commands which you can test it with Arduino and if that works then you might want to port that functionality into Python here.


I do have an Ardunio athough making great progress on pi. I will loop back later and take a look.
