    NO LED I've tried it, but it saps the battery power away completely

    I tried No LED too and found that it used too much battery. I would be interested to know the name of any program which makes the menu and back button light up please. Do they stay lit or do they blink?

    Interesting that your experience of No LED is that it drains the battery. I've used it fro a while now and the missus and we don't see any dicernable loss of battery. Maybe you have all the settings set to full bore :)
    I think that it is worth looking at the settings and only having those options ticked and enabled that you actually use. For example, turn of the weather updates.... No need for it, look out the window :)
    Change the frequency of the polling from every 1 min to 5 min or longer, Have it hibernate at night between say 21:00hrs and 07:00hrs.... There are loads of settings like that which when turned off or down will increase batterly life :D

    I did give NoLed another go and it used 29% of my battery within a few hours, going from 90+ to 67% so I uninstalled it again. I did have a look through the settings and turned off what I thought appropriate. I use Widgetlocker and I found that when I got a NoLed icon up on the screen after a notification I couldn't get the screen to respond for about 20 seconds.

    Still interested to know the name of any app which uses the Menu or Back lights instead?

    BLN is the app that lits up menu and back button when you get a notification
    But you need to be rooted and should be on custom kernel to use it

    I think this not done by Samsung and others because of the patents that have not benefited the customers and I am sure those patents got the cost for the phones so high.

    SIII has an LED as do other Samsung phones. Looks like the Note 2 doesn't have one either though. Doesn't really bother me.

    Note 2 does have the LED notification light. Look here around the 2:44 mark.
