Default Mozaic - Screen won't blank

Just bought an 8gb Zen Mozaic EZ300. I can't get the display to blank:

Menu -> System -> Display Settings -> Backlight Time. Get a screen with options for 5 to 30 sec. No matter what I do, the display is on permanently.

I listen to podcasts and other long files while drifting off to sleep, so a dark screen is a plus. And, I assume this shortens battery life. Am I missing something obvious?

By the way, I'm back with Creative after a long and very satisfactory stint with a Sansa Clip. No complaints about the Clip (and I already miss the clip), but I just can't understand why every player from every manufacturer can't bookmark any audio file.

With the standard Mozaic The screen only turns off if you lock it else it remains on. Can you lock the buttons on the EZ300?

Default Of course. That makes perfect sense.

Shazam! That works! Dumb, but it works.

So, if I want a dark screen, I have to sacrifice a few insignificant things. Like, say, changing the volume, setting bookmarks, being able to move forward or back through a file, pausing and un-pausing. Little shit.

Who wouldn't want a brick that plays sound? Somebody at Creative sure has a sense of humor. Or, is there a good reason for this?
