Unhappy Screen turning on by it self

Please Login to Remove!

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?
