Okay - we all know how annoying it is that the Phone screen of the Treo dims in response to automatically and ALWAYS turning on the keyboard Backlight.

Interesting behavior is afoot, however, as follows: If you try to turn OFF the keyboard backlight (two quick taps of the power button) you'll notice the screen get SLIGHTLY brighter. However, if you immediately switch to another application, you'll notice the screen get even brighter still.

This leads me to believe there are actually several backlight steps, all software adjustable. I'm wondering if someone could write a hack to control both the screen and keyboard backlights and allow for automatic control (based upon time of day) of both...

I'm sure many of us don't mind the KB backlight coming on, just not in the middle of a sunny day, outside, while trying to make a call!!! ;-)
