    While the keyboard is open, and in the middle of typing, the keyboard backlighting will randomly turn off. Sometimes for seconds, sometimes for minutes. Screen auto dim is off.

    Thank you,
    Steve

    Btw, turned off for about 2 seconds 3 seperate times while typing this message.

    Are you running any custom ROMs? Sometimes they might have glitches with this backlight...

    lol.....if you don't think so then you are most definitely probably not.... :)

    If not, then I really have no idea what would be causing this...have you dropped it or anything like that? Any abuse?

    Is screen auto dim tied to the keyboard backlight? I would confirm that the two are related before taking it back to verizon since it sound like auto dimming.
