Default Help with display light going on and off continuously

Hi,
I am not sure why but my display light keeps coming and going continuously draining my battery. I couldn't find any setting to change that.

Any help...I guess this happened after I was on apps downloading spree. Not sure what or which one affected.

Thanks for the help.

Do you mean that the display turns on and off at will with no user interaction?

Or do you mean the display goes from light to dark whilst the phone is in use?

If you think this is being caused by an application then there is no alternative than to systematically remove the recently added applications one by one to determine the cause.
Once the cause has been determined you can then reinstall the apps you want other than the problem application.

Yes the display turns on and off at will with no user interaction. The phone's lying on my desk and this keeps happening.
I am not sure if some app is causing this or is there some other reason. I suspected app as the reason because I got this problem only after downloading some.
Can there be some other reason?

It probably is an application so do as I said above, go through your apps and systematically uninstall them starting with the most recent and working your way back.
Keep a list of those apps or use App List Backup from the Android Market, once you've found the app at fault you can reinstall the others.

Thanks a lot, un-installing the apps did help. didn't have the patient to do it one by one so un-installed the recently downloaded ones and it did the trick.

Surprisingly, the antivirus in my phone passed all the apps

Thanks a lot for the help!!
