MacBook Pro 17'' screen backlight doesn't turn on

I have had this problem for a while with my MacBook Pro 17'' that I bought last April.
Sometimes, when I leave it on without touching it for a while, the screen backlight will switch off, though the screen will stay on. The effect is the same as if I turn the backlight to minimum power: I can still faintly see the screen, but it's too dark to do anything with it. This might be done to save energy, but the backlight does not turn on when I type or move the mouse.
This can be solved easily by closing and opening the screen again, but I was wondering if anybody had had the same problem, and found the reason?

There could be a number of reasons that's happening but since it's still under warranty, take it on in to Apple and have them look at it.
