Default Backlight?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there
Is there a way to adjust the backlight on the keypad and trackball so it is on longer? Or is it automatic adjusting depending on the lighting you are in? And is there a way to adjust the brightness of the trackball itself? thanks!

Go to Options >Screen/Keyboard. You can set the brightness of the screen there. You can't set the brightness of the trackball. Also, the screen brightness is controlled by a light sensor where the LED notification indicator is. If you upgrade to for the Pearl the autobacklight works better and can even be set to off.
