How can I keep my iPod display from lighting up with notifications?

I have an iPod touch 4th generation running iOS 5. It is jailbroken. When notifications happen, the screen lights up. I like notifications, so I don't want to turn them off, but it's just a waste when the screen comes on if I'm not using the iPod, since it is typically in my pocket. Even worse, it lights up at night on the dock while I'm sleeping (I have an alarm clock with a dock). This keeps me awake.
Is there anyway to keep the display from turning on when I'm not interacting with it? Or perhaps between certain times? Paid apps and Cydia apps are acceptable suggestions, since my iPod is jailbroken. Please don't suggest "cover the iPod" or "put the iPod face down" or "charge the iPod in another room."
