Default NoLED?

I noticed it seeming like the lighting of the phone was lit as well (but black), not just the led square that moves.

Anyone else notice? Is the lighting (black) of the screen only for a short while after getting a text or w/e, or does it stay on constantly?

Because it might be lame if I get a text while I'm asleep, and the phone is lit up black for HOURS. Perhaps it's a temporary black lighting?

Yes, when NoLed is activated upon a notification, the background is black, however it is infact actually lit.

If you are in a pitch black room, you can see the black background is actually lit.

With that said, I have not noticed any negative effects to my battery life.

Nothing noticable.

NoLed is hands down the BEST app created for the vibrant in my opinion.

Thanks for the response. Do you know if the lighting goes away as if the screen is off, except for the square(s) being active? Or does the backlighting stay on constantly?

There's a setting in NoLED to turn it off for a period of time. I have it set to turn off between 9:00 PM and 5:15 AM. Just hit Menu and find Time attributes under Time settings.

You can click the power button and it will turn the notifications off, or you can do what bovine said.

However, since I need notifications 24/7, even in the middle of the night, I leave it on. I don't like being woken up by my cell phone going off, but I do awake often and love seeing my notifications.

Personally never had issues with battery life in conjunction with noled

I just installed this app. It makes waking my Vibrant very slow. I have to hit the power button several times to make the display turn on. Not liking that at all.
Non-rooted Vibrant running 2.1.

If you get a notification, don't hit the power button, hit the home button and then drag the puzzle piece over or w/e your phone may be set to?

Also, a cool thing with NoLed that can be done besides setting times for it to turn off and back on, it have the widget on the main page, and after you get in bed, press the widget and it deactivates NoLed. Then after you wake up, press the widget again, and voila, it activates!

I second what ipeeps said, you are not suppose to hit the power button, you are suppose to hit the capacitive home button. Hitting power basically turns the notification off, hitting power again brings it back.

Figures. I am all ass-backwards. Been on an IPhone for years. Just figuring out the Android platform. I am now wondering why I waited so long to leave Mr. Jobs and his platform.

Just rooting? It's pretty hard to brick by just rooting. Even if that happens, Odin is there to save the day. Read up on it; Odin is your friend in times of need.

Do you know about the Vibrant Bible? Check it out...lots of good resources there.

is there a way to get exchange email accounts to work with NOLED? It picks up my gmail account, but I am not seeing an option for my work email in the NOLED program options. This exchange account has always created a notification in the notification bar like gmail and sms do. Thanks!
