A470: Help with a script for Manual focus, no review display, and a times loop

I need some help with a few things.  I have a very basic script working that takes a picture every 5 minutes and loops a number of times.  But I want to make sure the camera does not auto focus and instead stays on manual focus to infinity.  I also would like to have the display on my A470 turned off during this loop to conserve battery.

I'm sure for some of you this is a very easy script to write, but I'm in over my head and could use some help here.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have the A470.
But regarding "focus at infinity" you could try set_focus(65535).
The script (untested) will look like something like this:

press("shoot_half")
repeat
  sleep(5)
until get_shooting() == true
set_focus(65535)
press("shoot_full")

I hope this helps
