    Home Buttons are lit, not lit, lit...Hmmmm....anyone know why?

    Hello! My first question for the forum:
    I note that sometimes my little always-there home buttons (home/ menu/ back/ search) seem like they're sometimes lit and sometimes not and I can't seem to find any controls for that. I'd like to have them on most all the time (if not all the time).
    Any suggestions?
    Thank you all!

    Near the top of the screen hidden under the glass is a light sensor, these backlights run off of this...if it's light enough they will be off to save battery

    If you're rooted, Adjbrightness has an option to keep the button lights on all the time, or off too. I used to use this app my DX and liked it, but I haven't rooted my TB yet, so I'm not sure if it even works on this phone. If you're not rooted, I don't think there's anything you can do. Maybe figure out a way to permanently block off the light sensor.
