I was dissappointed about the white backlight replacement that was mentioned a while back not seeing the light of day. It would indeed be a comforting thought that the backlight can be replaced. Meanwhile, I'm conserving my backlight as much as I can.

Bedside lamp. Sleep configured to off backlight after 15 secs etc. Anyone have any idea if the roll over at 3.00am follows the Sleep setting or is it done with max power saving?
