So what we need now is a bit of 'companion software' that will make the BB screen wake-up automatically when
1. The BB is receiving external power
2. There's any kind of alert.
3. Switch to the app that's appropriate for the alert (e.g inbox)
Today, the screen only wakes up on an incoming call.
An alternate might be to have the backlight always on when the device is being charged, but this might risk draining the device faster than it's being charged!
Just silly that when tethered on a desk, you have to keep touching it to see that nice screen light up - if only to provide a desk clock!!
