I haven't seen a way to turn that off. Your best option would probably be to upgrade to the TIM firmware and disable autodim. Or take the ball out and electrical tape over the white LED.

Yeah, that's how it works. And it's a hex field, so the "numbers" go 0-F. To put in a letter, hit Alt-key. To put F instead of D, hold Alt and hit D/F twice.
