Default Light for menu, home & back keys ?

How do you turn on the light for the bezel mounted function keys ? I donít need them to light up AFTER I guess at their location and pushed one, but I need to know where (see) the one I need before I push it! What a crazy default factory design the A1 has for this.

Anyone know how to turn the light on for these keys?

Acer, Samsung and others have lit function keys that stay on. Now that makes sense.

I ordered some stick-on Braille dots so that at least I hope I will be able to feel the button locations even if I canít see them. But there must be a better solution?

What I am trying to say is that on my A1 the home, back and menu buttons are dark until I push one, then they light up.

Is there a way to light them up BEFORE I push one?

Well I know for Galaxy S devices, the app Keep The Lights On works. But you need root for that. (Im rooted with galaxy S abd use it)

i stuck some silver stars from a sheet of japanese stickers over the buttons; subtle (enough), and makes them easy to find... (of course, i shouldn't have to do that...)
