Turning on screen backlight

Turning screen backlight on when keypad is locked. To prevent spontaneus self dialing attempts, starting of applications or unintetional pressing on your handset's keys when the mobile phone is in your pocket or handbag, you usually use Keypad Lock feature. The phone manufacturers (at least Nokia) in that case even helps you to save your battery from draining out as a consequense, by keeping the phone's screen backlight turned off when these unintetional key presses happen on the locked keypad.

However, when you suddenly want to look at the time on your phone in the darkness, its difficult to see something on the screen because of backlight is turned off and stays so until you unlock the keypad. Luckily pressing shortly of the Power button will turn the screen backligt on in that case. (Worked on Nokia 6600, N70)
