Backlight always turns off after 2 minutes of inactivity
Hello! Goofy question of the day: I've got a very nice 17" PowerBook, but the screen backlight without fail shuts off after about 2 minutes of inactivity. Again, I know it's only the backlight because it has a faint image. If I close the machine and open it up, the light comes back, then goes off again after 2 minutes of inactivity, and you have to either power off/on or close and open the machine to trigger it to turn on again. If you actively use the machine, it stays on indefinitely and you never notice an issue. Because this is not an intermittent problem and the backlight is reliable otherwise, I tend to think this is probably not a bad screen/inverter/cable, but more likely a sleep/reed switch/sensor issue of some type? It's got a fresh install of Leopard, and I've tried turning off all the power saving settings, so I know it's not an OS issue. I'm looking for ideas on where to start, given that this is not the typical "dead backlight, replace the inverter cable" problem. Thanks!
Is this a good question?
