    Okay, so I just bought a new car charger/fm transmitter. I always keep my touch at minimum brightness to conserve the battery. But while I'm driving, I cannot see the screen on that brightness level, so I have to turn it up every time.

    Are there any apps (in Cydia) that will automatically make the screen brighter when plugged in to a power source and then changes brightness back when unplugged?

    Thanks!

    Don't know about yours, but my iPod Touch 2g has a choice between manual and auto-brightness. Check in the settings. Maybe you have older software that doesn't have this feature. I upgraded to 3.1.

    Read before posting.

    I'd like to see this too. It seems like one of those features that Apple should've included OTB.

    Dont think the touch has the light sensor thing the iPhone has, but i do know that having a case over the top left or right sides might affect this since it might cover the sensor thing, hence the ipod gets no light and it wont change.

    Double Fail. The Touch does have a light sensor and it has nothing to do with what the OP is talking about.

    I hate that feature.
    Every time I unplug it I always turn it right back up again.

    However, going from dim(unplugged) => bright(plugged in) is nice.

    But I never really see that happening, as I always have the brightness on max anyway... but in terms of iPod-ing, YES.

    just out of curiousity, what does the light sensor even do?
    I've tried turning brightness to low, half, and full brightness, with auto on
    Then blocking sensor, waiting a couple minutes, unblocking and no change D:

    With Auto on, the brightness is automatically adjusted only at the moment you unlock. Then it will stay at that brightness until it's locked again.

    Lock your Touch, take it into a dark room, and then unlock it. You will see the brightness turn way down.

    Ahhhh...
    Does the actual light sensor function use battery, or is it just when the brightnes shoots up that it kills battery (which i know it does)
