I'll bet a shiny e-dollar that it's always on, even at the lowest setting; we just need to wait for someone to get it and go into the bathroom, close the door with the lights out, and confirm.
You need the light at full brightness in a brightly lit room or it will look gray, just like previous eink kindle models.
