weird backlight problem in rc5
« on: October 19, 2004, 02:05:19 pm »
I just noticed something odd today when I closed the lid of my zaurus and plugged it in to recharge. I didn't suspend it, just closed the lid so that the backlight would turn off. Which it did, however, when I plugged it in the backlight turned back on while the zaurus was still closed. The same thing happens if you close the lid while it is plugged in, and then remove the plug, leaving the lid closed.

None of this stuff seems to happen if it is suspended, but changing from power to battery or battery to power while the backlight is off for some reason will turn the backlight on, even if it's closed. I guess it's not a big deal but it could be bad if someone turned off the suspend feature and didn't notice their backlight was on all night =P

Anyone else noticing this or is it just me?
