You have installed some software that has messed the screen settings. Some programs made for Windows Mobile 5 have this effect on Windows Mobile 6 (now the lowest backlight level isn't off, so programs that are not aware do this.)

To fix this turn on your PocketPC and wait until backlight times out (the screens turns on, instead of off), click menu. Wait again for the screen to light up and go to settings. Patiently proceed this way and reajust screen brightness to your desired levels. Uninstall any program that may want to control backlight (Phone Weaver had this effect on my i780, maybe recent builds are already corrected.) BTW, do this with the phone unplugged so backlight time out is shorter.

Definately some application is causing this.

For me it was Phonealarm - I had to leave backlight settings via phonealarm as "Leave Unchanged"
