What setting do I need to adjust so that the desktop on my BB stays lit longer?

My problem is similar - can you help? I set my 8700c Backlight TimeOut to the longest setting and it still goes out after a few seconds. Lite stays on while typing, but quickly goes off when reading emails. Backlight Timeout and LED coverage indicators are both set to 'on'.

You cannot adjust the DIM setting. The BB will detect the surrounding light and adjust.
