Default BBLight is still alive: Keep your Pearl display lit (on command)

Please Login to Remove!

When I'm watching a video, I don't want the backlighting to shut off till the video is over. When I'm in a car using Google Maps or BlackBerry Maps, I don't want the screen to go dark every 30 seconds. An old app from years ago, BBLight, lives on at SourceForge.net. I tried it on my new 8130 and it works like a charm. See my review at: App Review: BBLightxxx8211;Keep Your Display Lit (on command) My Blackberry Pearl 8130.

Model 8130 owners are especially invited to check out the entire blog at My Blackberry Pearl 8130.

What I'd love would be a setting in the OS to turn off all backlight changes and enable "full power" mode whenever playing a video.

This will help by giving me control over the setting, but I sure wish the OS provided that option.
