Default Home and Back buttons not lighting up

I think I'm losing it. I just realized that my home and back button don't light up (anymore). I think they did when I first got it. Are they suppose to be lit up?

Are you looking at the lock screen? They don't light up there.

That's what I first thought, but their not lighting up up during any use on any app. If this is a defect then I don't have to debate about returning for the loose screen

So you're just getting the multitasking button? Not to sound like an idiot, but you're talking about the N7, not your SGS3 right?

Aaaargh. DOH! Yeah, my S3. Thanks for catching that, you're pretty sharp today as oppose to me who must be a little out of it.

Anyway, I found the answer in display settings

MODS, feel free to send this thread into oblivion, or move it to the Galaxy S3 forum, or do whatever you want to with it, I don't care.

No worries, guess I just thought about those two buttons not working right (which I've seen in some reviews also). I'll get this guy killed. Cheers!
