It's a light sensor feature. It detects how much light there is and adjusts the backlight accordingly. I think it's real annoying. Go to Options/Screen Keyboard and turn Automatic Backlight off.

Stop moving your finger over the service indicator light and it won't dim (provided you stay in the same lighting).
