> Of course he can. So why do we not choose 3 seconds as the default? Because being constantly interrupted by a blacked screen is very annoying. I suggest we avoid doing that to our first-time users.

I think we can all agree that 15 seconds is enough time to
sufficiently preserve battery, read the screen, and allow the user to
understand that the screen isn't malfunctioning (having backlight
fading on by default will help illustrate this as well), but that a
timeout has occured which they can change if they want. Having it
shorter or longer requires a sacrifice.
