I use a little utility by Foundation Software, called Backlight Plus. It
creates a little hot spot in the corner of the screen of your choosing, of
the size of your choosing, where you can tap to toggle the backlight. It
also has a feature that you can set what time of day to have the backlight
automatically turn on (or every startup, if you wish). It also allows you to
turn off the backlight after a customizable time of inactivity. The Newt
defaults to 30 seconds, I think, but with Backlight Plus, you can change it.
Best of all, it is now freeware. :-)
