I got my Aura HD when they first came out and I've used the light twice (maybe three times).

You left out a choice in the poll: For feeling smugly superior, knowing that everyone wants one even if they say they don't.

Did you break your infrared video cam? Mine is starting to make ominous whirring noises when my mother shows up.

Mine is always on - most of the time I am reading in medium-to-low ambient light, so I use it to make the pages to appear brighter, but it is very convenient when the lighting gets dim and I don't have to get up and turn a light on.

Hmm I chose other. I leave mine set at 8 at all times. It works in all lighting conditions. I mainly read in the dark but sometimes I read in a normal setting.

Same here. I book the Nook Glowlight to read in bed at night, but I end up turning on the light almost all the time.

My front porch light has a 'mother detector'....similar to a motion detector however this one turns the light off when it detects my mother!

For me this is "To read in the dark or under dim light".
I have used the light every evening I was reading on the Kobo Aura HD since I bought it (mid-May). That means every evening, minus a dozen when I was out or too tired to read.

Hmmm... The spotlights and sirens approach would have worked, but being weak of will I succumbed to the scared rabbit look in her eyes and let her in. The big drawback to video cams I guess.
