It is an original firmware feature.
When backlight is on (full power), it turn into an half backlight during 30s-1min (choosable) before going off.
As the iaudio LCD is totally unreadable when backlight is off (not like archos, for example), I this that feature could be very usefull.

I could make some games more usable(for example sudoku or chess) and the "traditional" backlight can stay short (for me 5-8 seconds) and the "hafted" backlight longer (15s to 1min).

Anybody interessed by that ?

I think it can be portable for some other models too.

Sorry for my bad english...
This task depends upon

This is something that would work nicely for the Gigabeat as well. I would be totally interested in this feature.
