    I don't want my Mogul to shut off completely, just the backlight.

    Starting with the backlight on it's lowest setting, I've set it up so when
    it is running on "External power" the backlight should go off in "2 min" and
    the backlight stays on all night and maybe longer.

    Any ideas?

    TIA

    It sounds as if you also need to set the device to turn itself off, done
    on the Power/Advanced tab.

    Thanks and I'll give you some more info.

    The program, found at the following URL, will cause problems if the device
    turns off:
    http://us.slingmedia.com/page/slingplayermobile.html

    All I want to go off is the backlight and nothing else.

    "Off" is relative, I believe. I think the "off" power setting really
    refers to the display and not the device itself - otherwise how would it
    receive calls?

    I know nothing about the program you're using or how it might interact
    with the Mogul's settings, sorry.

    Not really. PPC Phones are really PDAs with a phone "grafted on."
    All PDA based functions (including the display, the media player, web
    browser etc.) shut down at power off, but the phone functions (phone
    and e-mail client) stay on. Power consumption is much less on power
    off. Picture the phone as a separate device inside the unit that is
    controlled by the OS (because it lacks it's own display and controls)
    sort of like a printer to a PC- the printer can stay on when the PC
    is off, but can't really do very much by itself without the PC
    controlling it.

    It runs on both WM5 and WM6 just fine and I still need a way to shut just
    the backlight off.

    That reminds me, I should run over to the Sprint Store right now and say
    something to them about the backlight.

    Thanks.
