Thatzmister2u response was spot on. If I take my Pearl out and the trackball isn't on, a quick flip of my hand over the LED gets it going.
I am running OS 4.3.0 so maybe it is a new power saver setting in the newer OS.
Please not that the keyboard will not light up unless there is very little or no light. The screen will come on for viewing during the day and in light just not the keyboard. The auto light function will make the screen very bright when it is bright out for visability (like in the sun). And it will go dimmer in the dark so that you are not blinded and will light the keys so you can see them in the dark.
