That is, if the tile clock said "1:02:03" as the screen goes dim, if I wake it up after five minutes, it will have frozen at "1:02:38".
(Probably not relevant but who knows: The duration of 35 seconds seems pretty repeatable. Also, if I wake up the screen before 35 seconds, it keeps going just fine. Dim, 34sec, wakeup, ok. Oddly, even though it says the clock stopped after 35sec, if I wake it up after 44 sec, it works fine. If I wake it up after 46 sec, it says the clocked stopped 10 sec ago at :35.)
(I also tried it using setTimeout() and manually setting the next timer. No difference, still fails to fire after a while.)
This is on a 9700 with OS 220.127.116.110, using the Internet Browser.
QUESTION: Does anyone know a way to keep setInterval firing even after the backlight's gone off???

Does your interval or timeout start working again in their loop and pick-up where they left off after the device comes back on?

I am having the same problem. Trying to issue a page refresh and force the user to re-authenticate, but the Curve 8900 goes to sleep and script stops working. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have the same issue. I have a setInterval object that sends an ajax request for updated information in a public feed. However it quits as soon as the backlight is turned off and the blackberry goes into sleep or stand by mode.
I know of a few possible workarounds:
-Changing the settings on the BlackBerry so the backlight never turns off ... (not so good on battery life)
-Providing the user with a refresh button if they notice the information not updating ... (not very intuitive)
Does anyone know of either a way to KEEP the setInterval running during sleep or stand by mode?
OR does anyone know of a way to determine that you are comming BACk from sleep or standy by mode and to resume the setInterval automatically?
Any help would be greatly apreciated.

It is not a solution, is plus a possible idea.
If you manage to make the extension please they publish it.

i didnt make any extension but what i think is that i can solve my problem after inclosing my page in a browser.field
there i can use all the rimlet api's as well. as i m going to develop web for BB

actually what i m doing is that i will call the webpage through an application. see sample code in BB jde for browser field..
by enclosing it in an application u will be able to use rim api's and then increase the time of backlight property
