ive got the blue glow set to turn off after 5 seconds to save on battery life, but i didnt know if there was a way to get the menu words to turn off after a wile to save further, mine stay on all the time and im not even sure if its suspost to do that, i kinda figured it would go into "sleep mode" after a wile like a computer monitior, but its just on , all the time, thanks for any info!

Actually, the 520's screen does turn off after a few hours of non-use and goes into a sleep mode to save power. It uses a motion sensor to detect movement and actually wakes up when you come near it. The motion sensor is extremely sensitive and sometimes walking in the same room can trigger it. Most likely you will notice the remote start to glow from across the room than finding the screen is off.
This is true for all 500 series remotes (520, 522, 525, 550, 555, 360) except the 510 and 515 which have been updated to include a tilt sensor.

I still have my 525 and it doesn't behave that way.
The names of the Activities are always on the screen, in black on white after the blue light turns off - as the OP experiences if I've understood him correctly.
To return the blue light it is necessary to click an Activity selection button or the "glow" button.

The way it behaves is that you shouldn't see it with the screen off as it only turns off after a few hours and turns on at the slightest vibration in the room. It's not going to turn off the LCD while still in your hand.
It's a quirky feature, but it's there.

Thanks Eric - I've never seen my 525 without at least black text on a grey background - maybe the room is vibrating all the time!
In contrast the One is usually completely blank.
