Default Brightness settings inexplicably frequently resetting??

So as most of you know, when brightness is max'd on the Evo Shift, battery life is just terrible. I find that probably every other day, I will notice my battery goes from 100% to 25% after very minimal use and every time, it is b/c my screen brightness reverted from automatic brightness back to max brightness.

Anyone have an idea what causes this? Just chalk it up to another bug with the software on these phones?

No, this happens to me several times a week but I haven't a clue what causes it.

Are you using Handcent?

I've been a big fan but have been finding it screwing with brightness.

I don't use handcent and it happens randomly. About a month ago I noticed it was happening every time I did a restart. After last week's profile update it's not as frequent. I've had this phone for quite awhile... little suprise glitches keep this phone interesting.
