Yeah that is a known issue. There is a work-around listed on the issue page (although it is a fairly dirty hack).. https://github.com/blackberry/WebWorks-Community-APIs/issues/51

I am sure there will be a performance hit, which is why it is a dirty hack, but it may solve your problem until it gets an official fix.

Re: Backlight : Disable device going into sleep

Has this been resolved yet? I am developing a feedback device and need the screen to stay on.
