    Has anyone else noticed weird behavior with background apps preventing their iphone4 from auto dimming?

    I noticed that my phone was not auto dimming and brightness was always cranked up. So I restored the settings to default and it fixed the problem. Then a couple of days later I notice auto dimming is not working again. The phone stays on the same brightness until the screen auto locks. A reboot does not clear it.

    However shutting off all background apps does fix the problem. I kill all the running apps and just like magic the auto dim is working again.

    Seems to be some weird ios4 thing with the background apps.

    No one else has noticed this? I expect people will sooner or later.
