    no keyboard backlight

    I installed the 2.0.1 update today. However, I just realized that my physical keyboard will not light up anymore. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Hope my Droid isn't broke.

    It should only light up when you in a dark room. Same with the capacitive buttons on the bottom of the screen. Take your thumb and place it over the top right hand corner of the device and wait a few seconds. The lights should turn on then. This saves battery life...

    I guess this is a problem for those of you still using that "battery saving" auto mode? (It hurt my eyes with the constant switching, so I turned that off long ago). I have not seen any problems with backlight of keyboard or screen buttons not turning on.

    It wasn't only my keyboard. My soft buttons wouldn't light up either and was in the dark. However, weird thing was after I posted this, I tried my phone a bit later and it's working now.

    I've seen a number of posts alleging the 2.0.1 update broke their phone. I don't believe any of them. Either the update didn't complete successfully and something got corrupted, or the user is expecting something that's just not there.

    If it happens again... Home Screen > Menu > Settings > Sound & Display > Brightness. Uncheck and than check Automatic Brightness. That seems to "unstick" the non-working backlight on the keys.

    This is happening to me also, what I've noticed though is after locking; then unlocking the screen the problem goes away until another reboot, which it happens again until I lock and unlock the phone. Kinda annoying but thankful for an update atleast.

    It started working again last night after I plugged it into the wall charger. I updated yesterday morning and didn't notice of the soft keys or the keyboard lit up during the day. It's working this morning as well, so hopefully it's fixed...

    It is very strange, but after the update, I noticed that my keyboard lights and and soft buttons would flash on and off randomly (at about 5-10 second intervals) while typing a text message in the dark. This did not happen before the update so I wonder why it is doing this. My automatic brightness is turned off.
