    Keeping the backlight on full power

    Hi there,

    The problem I have is the backlight dimming when it thinks it's in low light conditions.

    I don't have a problem with the backlight going off as the code uses QSystemScreenSaver to inhibit the screen saver (it's a Qt app).

    The only threads I could find were using HAL::SetData() and when looking at the header files they're all marked as PublishedPartner so I can't use them.

    Anyone know another way to keep the display on full power? It's a colours based game so really needs the display on full at all times while running.

    Reser inactivity timer should basically do the trick just fine, so have you tried using it already ?

    (User::ResetInactivityTime, call it periodically)

    Thank you, it's still seemingly dimming after several seconds of delay if I cover over the light sensor but now lightens up immediately when I uncover it so it's much better behaviour than before.
