    In options>screen/keyboard>set your backlight time longer but when your typing the backlight should just shut off

    Turn on Auto Dimming.

    I found that to be a problem as well but when i turned on the Auto Dim feature it recognizes when it is dark and keeps the keyboard light on when you are using it. It does however dim the screen slightly, but its not really an issue at night.

    options>screen/keyboard> Automatically Dim Backlight >On

    Just cover your LED on top of the screen (right from your earpiece) with your finger for few seconds and your lights should turn on. That LED also has a sensor that senses amount of the light. If you cover it up, it will think that it is dark and will turn on your keyboard and screen.

    Again, i am pretty sure that feature is only enabled when you have Auto Dimming enabled. Before i turned that on the light sensor made no difference to the keyboard/backlight.

    LED Sensor works great

    This works quite well in all the dimming functions I have tried. I finally set mine to a 30 brightness and backlight to 20 sec. If no keyboard light I cover the led. My problem is wasting battery because when I hold the BB I tend to cover the LED. Disturbed me that the light on the keyboard and screen was so variable until I was told about the sensor.
