    Turn off Backlight

    Maybe I've missed something obvious in the manual or searching the posts...

    Is there a button to turn off the backlight like there is on the Q9c? The backlight is bright, which usually is good, but sometimes I want to turn it off rather than waiting for time out so it isn't so distracting.

    Thanks.

    The only way I know is to lock the keyboard.

    Go to Settings/Power/Power management and select "Backlight timeout on battery". The shortest one is 5 sec.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually played with shortening the default, but the problem is that most of the time I like it long. It's just sometimes, like checking a text at a movie, I'd like to turn it off quickly (the light is so bright). But, that's just sometimes.

    The button on the Q9c was very nice for this.

    you can also adjust the backlight brightness in power settings. There are 4 choices. I have found no quick way to get there though and that seems cludgy 3-4 years into Windows Mobile smart phones..

    I still want to know which button on the Q9c turns off the backlight. Mine doesn't seem to have it.

    How do I get that button to act as 'turn off backlight'? I tried 'Fn' and CAPS. The message button only goes to....

    Doh! Hold that button.
