That's exactly it....doing anything to light up the screen. I keep the brightness at about 1/4, since my Fuze generally stays inside. Backlight, I keep around 15 seconds, but you can go shorter. As long as your battery is topped off each day, and you're not watching videos, it should last through your school day just fine. Jazz EQ should be OK, it's the custom settings that murder the battery.
