User choice of backlight brightness is lost as a result of the idle detection. Discussed in #olpc with cjb, this needs a change to get brightness, calculate an approprate lower value, and restore brightness, instead of setting to an absolute value.
By comparison, a MAC OS X laptop I have here will not dim below the minimum brightness setting.
