One person suggested to me using a light stick.
Another suggested pointing the flashlight at the ceiling and using the reflection to 'light' the room.
What happens when the flashlight lands pointing at you? Or a hidden intruder grabs it and uses it against you?
If the room is empty you now have to retrieve the flashlight, not to mention that if there is an intruder in a nearby room area, you just grabbed his attention with the noise.
