That was my suggestion and not what I thought as it is now.

This doesn't work here! (Tested the current cvs version.)

I agree.

Yes, I know.

To recapitulate: At the moment there is no way to only turn on the
backlight with one keypress. I personally would prefer having this
function on a "short" keypress. But if a "long" keypress does it, it
would be also better as now.

Bye, Uwe.
