I need to keep the backlight from turning off in my J2ME app.

The way to do that seems to be to call DeviceControl.setLights(0,100) according to other posts on this forum.

However, this call does nothing on my 7610 test hardware. The backlight turns itself off after about 10 secs. And subsequent calls to DeviceControl.setLights(0,100) does not turn it back on.

1. Is this a known issue with the 7610?

2. Is there another known way to keep the backlight on? The backlight comes back on after a key is being pressed. Is there a way to fool the system to think that a key has been pressed?

Any ideas?
