FS#13391 - Backlight timer should start when key is released not pressed.

I’d like to suggest that the timer for when to turn off the LCD backlight should start when the last pressed button is released rather than the current behavior - when a button is pressed.

I have my backlight timer set to 10s because that is usually more than enough time and I want conserve the battery life.
However, when I’m scrolling through files/database/playlist in order to find a particular song, I PRESS and HOLD a (fwd / back) button. While I’m still holding the button (in order to scroll) the backlight times out. I think it would make more sense to start the backlight timer when all buttons are released.

What do you think?
Is there already a way around this that I missed?

Thank you,
best iMpig
