With a transreflective LCD such as on the 5G iPod, the LCD remains
visible with the backlight turned off when there's enough external
light. In that case, I think it makes sense to be able to shut down the
LCD in stages, first turning off the backlight after one delay and then
the LCD after another delay.

This is not particularly important to me though.

BTW. I just notice one way to cause a problem: if I turn off the
backlight, I can't turn on the LCD by touching the controls. So, if I
wanted the backlight to stay off and the LCD to come on when I use the
controls and shut off after a specific time, I can't do that. I never
wanted to do this because it would be a problem in the dark.
