Backlight seems to be lit when charging the device while off

The latest update 2.0.1.358 seems to provide a image when removing the charger on the device while its off, but it also caused the device to have the backlight on while charging, which causes energy consumption. Please confirm if this can be addressed. Thanks.

Okay so it seems to be hardware version specific then. I already did a debricking method of update to wipe the OS entirely, but the behavior still persist.

Re: Backlight seems to be lit when charging the device while off

During charging, the PB is not off. If your PB is turned off and then connected to the charger, it actually turns on for recharging except in the case of very low battery charge in which case it shuts down the PB. This is how the charging software works. Your screen may be very lightly backlit during charging. Once charging is completed it will shut off and the backlit screen shuts off totally within a minute.

I am also experiencing this. Sometimes as well my backlight turns itself on when the device is in standby.
