    When i power on my droid or slide it open the keyboard the keyboard itself doesn't lite up. the only way i can get it to light up is to hit the light widget on the desktop and then it still dies out after a bit. I have to go back to the home screen and do it again. Is there a way to set my phone to if the screen is on or the keyboard is slid out, the keyboard light is too?
    running launcher, with 2.1, and cyanogen 5.0.5.
    Thanks

    You can try this: Simply put your finger over the top right of the droid front area (there is a light sensor there) and the softlights might come on. If not try just pushing the power to make it sleep, then wake it up again.
