Haha, I was just wondering that same thing the other day, I was actually doing stuff intentionally on my phone (missing calls and texts, etc) to see if I could get it to light up, but just wouldn't happen.

I suspect the auto setting probably does save battery life. But the auto setting sometimes doesn't result in consistent operation. The screen will occasionally dim in bright light or brighten in dim light, depending on the app. So I disabled it and set it to 25% with the Brightness Level widget. That's bright enough for everything but outside use.

I tried 2 different brightness level widgets but they didn't seem to work properly. If I chose a level, it said it was set at, say, 25%, but didn't actually go to that level until I opened the brightness setting. I didn't have to DO anything with the brightness setting, just opening it made it go to whatever I had set with the widget. Didn't seem any easier that just adjusting in the settings. Have you had luck with a widget?
