Default Dimming Backlight

Please Login to Remove!

Im sure other blackberrys do the same thing, but I was wondering why my Bold 9650 dims the backlight randomly.

It has an ambient light sensor and is trying to match the screen brightness to that light level. This can also happen if you cover the sensor (with your thumb for example).
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
