I recently started using Velis auto brightness control. Could that be the issue?
Are there any other stats and specifics that I need to mention for anyone to help me out? :P

The same suggestions I made in the Rasbeanjelly thread to the same question there, BetterBatteryStats and CPUSpyPlus.

Sorry for no activity guys, I get so little comp time lately
I have however managed to make some progress and have updated first post with a new version that has the following new additions:
  • Service will stop after a minute if auto brightness is disabled
  • Support for proprietary sensor solutions on Sony Xperia, SGS2
  • Updated translations: german, persian

This is not yet a release since I'd like to do two more things before I do that:
  1. Try to fix the graph freeze
  2. Create a first-start settings wizard

In order to do the first, this version (in the first post, not the market) contains some logging enhancements. I would ask someone with the problem to please drop me a mail with logcat @ level 9 (long press the proximity sensor reading values to set the level). All I need is a few seconds @ level 9 when the graph is not responding to light changes.

The second item will be a series of 4 - 5 dialogs asking the user about his basic preferences. I will make it so that even existing users will have the option of running this dialog.

Of course, I'm also interested in Xperia sensor support if any Xperia users are still following the thread. Maybe for the support to work correctly, apps like this will need to be active. The app should work even without that, but there may be some strange results because OS and app will fight for their brightness. Don't know what the OS does if an app sets its own brightness.

@shadowch: The baby is great, we're having so much fun. We already managed to get her to sleep during the nights (that's why I have no more comp time ) We're all going for a walk to lake Bled today.

Lake Bled is such a beautiful place! I regret not visiting the church in the center of the lake last time.

The wizard will introduce quite a few new strings.

I'm thinking of implementing some custom translation routines so that translators could verify the translations right away. Would that be helpful?

You missed out on the wishing bell on that church as well

Are you already using http://crowdin.net/ ?

This would allow for translators to get notified of new strings and also you can see how much is already translated...

EDIT:
Maybe there's also a similar free service available; use Google to your advantage

Yes, auto notification would be lovely! Some of Lithuanian strings are not translated yet.
