    And you posted in the MBA section...

    Does it turn off in total darkness even if your typing? Or does it turn off after some time in utter darkness?

    In total darkness, Instantly. If I put my cellphone, which has some light, close to the sensor, it goes back on.

    Yes, I posted in the MBA section. I`ve seen worse things beeing posted here.

    Ok, that just rocks. Thanks! But why does it turn off every minute?
    Any other things that are useful? Only got that one :)

    You have it set to adjust to ambient light? Checked? Uncheck it :)

    There are tons of apps.

    Now what´s left is the four finger swipe, but that´s not gonna be done. Because I don´t understand the describtion made on this forum, lol. Well, I´m pretty happy anyways.
    Gonna look around for apps. Scream if you can think of any.
