What's wrong with the above steps?
Don't disconnect the USB; the light goes dim immediately after you press the light button to turn the frontlight off. Here are my steps:

1. Plug USB into Glo, choose cancel when asked to connect to PC.
2. Turn on frontlight.
3. Turn off frontlight. The light goes dim for a second, then goes completely off.

Sometimes the frontlight only goes dimmer for a fraction of a second, and you'd miss it if you weren't looking for it. A few times, I've had it stay at half-brightness for 10-15 seconds.

Here are two photos of my Glo in an almost completely dark room, first at normal lowest brightness:



And then at a dimmer level after pressing the light button to turn the frontlight off while connected to a USB charger:
