Hi, @ilko mitrikov,

The only 'so much as' I know is used as is mentioned in Collins COBUILD:

If you say that someone did not do so much as perform a particular action, you are emphasizing that they did not even do that, when you were expecting them to do more.
I didn't so much as catch sight of him all day long.
Laura had not reproached him, never so much as mentioned it.
She auctioned off the car without so much as taking a ride in it.
So, I think you'd better use 'so as to, in order to, so (that), in order that' to express the purpose:
I turned on the light so as to see who was there.
