Any way to get the physical keyboard to stay on as long as the screen itself?

    Really bothers me when I'm playing Snesoid and the keys keep going dark if I'm going through text or reading menus or something. Any way to get the keyboard illumination to stay on?

    If you set the screen to auto adjust the brightness the keyboard will stay lit when it's dark.

    I have mine set to auto brightness, and the keyboard backlights fade in and out randomly independent of the screen. It drives me nuts. I'll be in a darkish room, like dusk darkness. The screen will be a constant brightness, but the keyboard will go to black, then after 4 or 5 seconds come back, then a few seconds later go to black, etc. It's really annoying!

    Are you using / have you looked at Screebl?

    I do use Screebl and it's wonderful for keeping the screen on when I'm using the phone, but it hasn't seemed to change the nature of the keyboard lighting for me :(

    check the prefs under brightness and check full brightness and keyboard. from my testing I think this keeps the keyboard on.
