RE: backlight turns on and off....

I like the light on during charge. Archos firmware just keeps the light
on in the charging screen regardless what is (or isn't) going on, which
seems like nothing more than a waste of energy.

It's handy that the light goes off after charging since I like to unplug
R20 in the morning after it's been charging all night. If it's not done
charging, I'll leave it on till I get home from work. I never take my
Archos to work anyway.

Are you talking about the charging screen? That one gives light when it
actually puts energy in the cells, which may be intermittant. Just like
electric stove or iron. I thought this would be a good quick indication
on how the
charging goes, when you have it charging under the table, at the other
of the room, etc.
