I've tried testing it in different scenarios and it's working great for me (at least until there's a better solution).

Thanks. Great app.

Good advice, works very good like this.

Now all that is needed is an auto-on option to turn the backlight on with the press of any key, regardless if the phone is locked or not. Forgetting that this on and the BB is not holstered would drain the battery unecessarily.
