I have the backlight timer on for 5 seconds. No "fading" or anything. This bug happens with and without the "first keypress turns on backlight" option.

If I use the MIDI plugin to play a file and then wait until the backlight turns off, pressing any key will stop the music and freeze the device. The backlight does not turn on. This happens almost always.

Others have reported a similar thing during regular music playback, although much more rarely. Maybe it is related to the CPU load?

There is nothing in the MIDI code that touches the backlight, so it is probably something outside of this program..
This task depends upon
