Default Stopping the backlight timeout

Please Login to Remove!

Hi: When using OverDrive eBook reader the backlight times out. In OverDrive there is a slider which supposedly allows one to set the brightness. It does nothing. I can't find a PB Screen setting which keeps the backlight on.
Is there any way to allow the PB to be used as an eReader?
OverDrive otherwise works well for it allows a direct download from my local Library.
Thanks.
Donald

Such a setting, if there is one, would be in the app as far as I know.
