comment 2004 Ford Focus engine cover would not budge after all screws are removed
+1 for the rubber mallet suggestion. Worked for me many times. Those Haynes manuals always make it look so easy :)

comment Is it possible to disable beep for opening door before shutting off the engine?
It is most likely a feature that just gets carried over each year. It is an alert so you don't lock your keys in your car accidentally. mikes makes a good point, it may be a feature that is programmible with your car. If not, you could always take it to Toyota and see if they can do anything for you.

comment Dashboard lights are dim?
Similar to what jensgram said... My wife's Civic was the same way after replacing the battery. Instead of the knob or dial I was used to, you had to press the +/- buttons on the dash. Check your owner's manual to see if yours is adjustable like that.
