Default Any way to make trackball turn on backlight?

Please Login to Remove!

The need to push a key to get the light back on is a big nuisance. I tried bblight but no good with trackball movement. Does anyone know anything that will turn on the backlight with movement of the trackball?

Not that I know of. Quite honestly I like the fact that the trackball doesn't activate the backlight. If it did I wouldn't be able to just slip the Blackberry into my coat or shirt pocket or even my briefcase without activating a keyboard/trackball lock.

I have a feeling RIM will come up with this option in the near future though, maybe with a firmware update.

Clicking the trackball does it on mine.
