    I can't seem to get the light sensor to work properly. When the phone wakes up, the sensor reading will often change, but then just stays at that value for a long time. If you wait about a minute all of a sudden the light sensor starts working again, and then it pauses again. The result is quite annoying as the phone is often way too dim to see outside.

    I was with LGB1.52, then switched to CM7.0.2, then switched to LGB1.8. They all have the same behavior. It's easy to reproduce: Get Sensor List from the Android Market and look at the Light Sensor on it.

    Has anyone found a fix for this yet? Seems like this is a common problem as I found this thread at Cyanogen's forum:

    Display Brightness/Lockscreen/Drawer issues - CyanogenMod Forum

    Although their suggested fix did nothing for me.

    I love Gingerbread, and LGB1.8 is perfect on my OG Droid except for this. My phone is unusable when I am outside half the time. :(

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    I see that time to time. I usually just manually adjust the setting from auto to a preset level in the widget dropdrown. :)

    I don't know if this would have any help or not, but in liquid settings-general-automatic babacklight-enable light sensor filter & then experimenting with those tweaks would help or not, but it might be worth a shot if have not already tried so.
