The whole Auto Backlight thing confuses me. At 100%, I found it too bright, so I switched it to 80%, and turned OFF the ABL.
When I "un-sleep" the BB, the screen goes to brighter than my 80% (I assume 100%) for something like 10sec, and then dims down to 80%.
When I turn ABL ON, and "un-sleep" the BB, it goes to bright for about half a sec, and then drops to the 80%.
My thinking on the ABL, was that if ambient light was low, and ABL was set to ON, it would come on and brighten the screen (and number pad). It does do that if I put my hand over the unit at an angle and peek in.
If ABL is OFF, the screen (and number pad) come on. Odd to me. Sounds backwards. If OFF, it comes ON. Maybe I'm crazy.
