    Oh there's a reason. There's always a reason. It might not be what you want to hear (like its defective) but there's a reason......

    What do you mean it lights up for no reason? like its sitting on the table with nothing near it at all and the screen just goes on?

    There could be a number of reasons. Do you have an application open that might refresh on its own?

    Mine does this occasionally if I forget to fully close an app after I'm done using it. I just pull up the app switcher from the main screen, close everything, and that seems to resolve the issue.

    mine does that when in clock mode.... it would dim then sometimes it would brighten up. I believe its the light sensor.... maybe?

    Not familiar w/Weather Eye but my Weather Bug will log on & download new data every 30 min (or whatever I set it to). Maybe that's cause to light up? I'll have to watch mine now...

    When mine isn't in use I keep it in the case that came with my Storm. Well until I buy a new one.

    Note that the Black berry may keep lighting up for a number of reasons like defective product or trying to connect to a device - like if you leave the blue tooth on for example ...But the most common reason is leaving an application open and running in the back ground like having a number of videos open in you tube application ...the black berry will light up to remind you that it is waiting for a command from you .... in a way but can drain a battery faster so please close all apps when not in use.
