My BB curve start to behaving weird where screen turns on and off by it self. Due to this unwanted exercise my battery drys very quickly. I was wondering if any body experienced with same problem and is there any thing that I can do ?

Welcome to the BBforums.

The screen should go to sleep (dark, i.e., black) after a certain amount of time (Options > Screen/Keyboard > Backlight Timeout = set as desired.

Were it to stay on bright you battery would dry very very quickly.

Did you try popping out the battery and putting it back in?
