    I was just thinking about the keyboard lights, and hannip's program seems to be the closest thing. I'm sure Treo Alert is keeping him busy, but I thought it might be worth checking back in.

    Sorry to rez a dead thread, but I thought it might be better than starting a new one.

    Yeah, I tried several things to get this to work right. I have one more thing to try, but no time to play right now. Stupid work. :-/

    Hannip,

    What's the registry key is the one that needs to be changed to turn the light on/off?

    There are 2 reg values that are used to hold the brightness level for the backlight and keylight. These are used to remember the settings on reboot. Changing them will do nothing until the driver is reloaded.

    Code:
    		displayLevel = RegReadDWord(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, L"Drivers\\BuiltIn\\Backlight", L"PwmDisplayBrightnessLevel" );
    		keypadLevel = RegReadDWord(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, L"Drivers\\BuiltIn\\Backlight", L"PwmKeypadBrightnessLevel" );

    Is this to turn off the keyboard lights? Yah how do I turn it off?
  13.    #73  
    yes, the app will do it, but there were side effects when putting the phone in suspend. The only way it works without side effects is to run it and soft reset.

    This was the 700wx keylight mortscript:

    Keylight On:

    Code:
    RegWriteDword ("HKCU", "ControlPanel\Backlight", "BatteryTimeout", 1 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKCU", "ControlPanel\Backlight", "ACTimeout", 1 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\On", "kyl0:", 0 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\BackLightOff", "kyl0:", 0 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\BackLightOff", "bkl1:", 0 )

    Keylight Off


    Code:
    RegWriteDword ("HKCU", "ControlPanel\Backlight", "BatteryTimeout", 1 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKCU", "ControlPanel\Backlight", "ACTimeout", 1 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\On", "kyl0:", 4 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\BackLightOff", "kyl0:", 4 )
    RegWriteDword ("HKLM", "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\State\BackLightOff", "bkl1:", 0 )

    Is there any way to adapt that to the 800w?
  15.    #75  
    If it were only that simple. The 700wx had a separate driver just for the keylights so it was easy to just power down the driver to turn it off.

    On the 800w Palm in their infinite wisdom combined the backlight and keylight to use the same driver. So if you power down the driver you lose both the keylight and backlight.

    not sure if it will help, but psShutXp seems to be able to turn of the backlight and keypad without any strange side effects.

    I don't have a Treo 800w so not "much" chance of that - though if someone wants to send me an email for test version we can see if my hack worked

    Email to "support AT pocketmax.net" for Keylight if you are interested

    Cool. But we don't need the backlight to turn off along with the keyboard lights, we want only the keyboard lights. We don't need the keyboard lights on if we have sufficient ambient lighting.

    That was my post on your forum regarding support for the 800w. I just performed a hard reset and exported the registry, which I'l email to you.

    So, since Palm moronically combined the backlight and keylight, are we screwed? I have watching CorePlayer with keylights.

    It certainly makes it harder. Did anyone try Bruce's hack?
