This issue has been reported in trac.
It seems that B4 is a bit obsoleted now and would be too much burden
for developers to maintain corresponding codes. Though it would be
nicer to me if OHM could keep the back light level if not suspending
to avoid this problem. Also it's not very reasonable to me that OHM
always sets to full back light level when entering shutdown sequence.
