A couple of things spring to mind. Have a good hard look at the screen when it goes dark. Is there still an image there but it is really dark? If so, consider that it may be a faulty backlight. It may also be a faulty ribbon cable joining the screen to the main unit, or it may be that the brightness down button is stuck and causing it to lower the brightness. The fact that you are pressing the brighness (up button I am guessing) and it comes back on, may indicate the bright down button is stuck or by pure chance you are pressurising the board in that area causing a bad contact to work, such as power to the backlight or pressure on the ribbon cable. I dont have one of these MobilePro's but I am just going on things I have seen with notebook PC repairs. Hope this helps.

This problem may occur if the user allows the batteries to discharge to a state where the MobilePro must shut itself down. This state may cause the system storage memory to become unstable requiring a "hard" reset after the system has been fully charged again. Failure to perform the hard reset may result in data loss at a later time. The user manual states that if you receive a message indicating that the batteries are low, immediately connect the AC adapter to the device. The solution is to perform a "hard" reset after fully charging the internal batteries, and then install the service packs, software updates and user software.

what is it hooked up to? If a windows computer you can quickly do this by holding down 3 keys at once. Ctrl + Alt + choose an arrow key. Tip if your doing this on dual display, what ever screen your mouse last clicked on will be changed when you do this. Ctrl + Alt + left arrow or right arrow depending on orientation desired.
