    Time already for the sleeping engineers at RIM to wake up and address this one -

    If you perform a battery pull (not a keyboard reboot) and you had the screen set for 10-second backlight timeout, it ALWAYS goes back to 20-second backlight timeout...

    It has been this way through a good 20 7.1 releases...and I have posted about it before.

    My settings:

    1) Backlight timeout = 10 seconds
    2) Screen brightness = 10%
    3) Auto-Dimming = ON

    Don't joke guys. He's posted about this issue before, so it's officially major.

    I'm sure RIM is fixing this while building BBX

    I keep mine at 30 and it holds after a hard reboot.

    I don't have this issue, but I do recall reading earlier about it and there was a solution offered which seemed to help.

    http://forums.crackberry.com/showthr...16#post7226716

    For those having the backlight wont stay at level 10 bug, try the below solution:

    1) set your screen brightness to level 10, and timeout to 1min.
    2) now set your battery saving mode to 'always on'
    3) then, proceed to your screen brightness menu, try to set your timeout time to 1 min. Note that your brightness is still 10.
    4) lastly, switch off your battery saving mode.
    5) reboot.

    See if the above works. My screen brightness stayed at 10 even after multiple reboots.
    Sometimes it just helps to SEARCH the forum.

    Hope this helps.

    This is not a bug, in fact, it is because you have selected (Battery Saving Mode ON) So according to that setting it will how ever be back to 20 seconds, i myself have the same thing as well as many others obviously or try turning battery saving mode OFF

    So it's not bug its just in case if your time out is like 40 seconds maybe, so it gets back to 20 when you reboot the phone or do a battery pull
    But i too, i wish that could just be on 10 seconds to but again that's the selected setting from RIM for Battery Saving Mode

    You need to approach this as "Apple" would...... it is one of rwo things.... either you are not doing the battery pull correctly or more importantly... it is an undocumented feature....

    You've clearly never worked in software development if you think RIM's engineers or any competitors are 'sleeping'.

    For those saying its not a bug...it is indeed a bug. After a battery pull or full restart of any kind ALL settings should be the same. If he has 10 second timer on and battery saving mode on its no excuse that the OS changed settings on him just because battery saving mode was on...

    while I'd admit it must be annoying for those using BSM, an intentionally controlled setting is not a bug.

    I posted about this before. My past 3 blackberry have done this as well. Even turning batt saver mode off doesn't work

    It isn't intentional design; it's a bug. Battery save mode off - and it does the exact same thing. I want a 10-second screen timeout and a 10% screen backlight. When I pull the battery, it always goes back to a 20-second screen timeout. For those who don't see the bug, I suspect they are not using the same settings. It used to work in 7.0 and in the 1st few releases of 7.1.

    Had this been an intent by design, then it's still a bug, because if it has something to do with BSM - the user should not be allowed to get the screen timeout down to 20 seconds in the 1st place with BSM on. How is one supposed to know it will revert on a battery pull?

    For those who say it is intent by design, where have you read about this exactly?

    Well if you have bsm turned off and it still happens then that kinda proves your point. That's too bad though. Hey, at least its a ridiculously trivial issue

    The object of BSM is to override the personal settings. That's what I mean by intended. Why it's now not maintaining settings when off I'd agree is a bug, but since it's not universal, there may be a 3rd party app involved.
