    What it does: Simply allows you to toggle your KB lights on and off whenever you want

    Map it to a hardware key of your choice for easy access.

    Tip
    : You should be able to tie it into PhoneAlarm's profiles (via the LaunchProgram option), so that you can have the lights on or off depending on your Profile.

    Leave feedback in Bruce's forum and give him some thanks for his hard work on this freeware app!

    Do I need to reset the device to apply the changes?
    I installed the Cab on the device (Treo 750v) and got the new KeyLight application icon.

    I run it (and run it again) and the keyboard lights stay on (or turn back on when I press any-key).

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    Well, to be honest it hasn't been tested on the 750v, I didn't think they were different in this regard.

    You don't need to soft-reset.

    Bruce, could you take this wonderful yet simple keylight application and make the keyboard light blink rapidly like the LED notification that phone alarm has to offer, somehow integrate it with the LED notification when a message arrives?

    For example, two blinks would be email, 3 blinks sms...etc with repeating options of course... would be very cool add on to an already awesome phonealarm product!

    Malatesta, since you have this app longer than anyone, can you report on how much does it save battery? A little, moderate, a lot?
    i know for sure KBlights made a huge impact on the battery life on my 650 , how does it compare?

    Hard to say on the battery life. I originally wanted to measure it via that battery measuring app but alas it doesn't work on the 700. I would say it it saves a good amount, although it was hard to say since I was resetting a lot trying new versions of the program. I would put the number around 5% for the day, just a wild guess.

    I do notice that about 80% of the time I leave the KB lights off now.

    It works well on my 700wx. I get an interesting effect, though. When I turn off the keyboard lights, they just go off. When I turn them back on, the screen and keyboard flash on and off a couple of times before things settle down with the screen and keyboard on. Has anyone else seen this?

    Yup, that's how it works!

    The big hold up/issue was turning them back on. Not as simple as turning them off, so Bruce had to come up with some interesting ways to get it to work. He had to force the device to re-read the registry/power state and that's how he accomplished it.

    Funny thing was he was about ready to settle for a lesser version but at the last second he figured it out and remarkably it worked.

    For awhile, we had it so that you had to toggle the app "on" but the lights didn't come on, you had to power off then on and then they'd be back on, so there was an extra step. Now there isn't just the "flashing".

    Cool. It's a neat effect and as long as it is working properly, I am very happy. Now to decide which button to assign it to...
