    Hey guys had a question. I noticed today while watching a movie at night in a vehicle that the 4 navigation buttons at the bottom of the phone never go off. At night it's actually quite annoying while trying to watch a movie. How can i get these to turn off while viewing a video?

    Yeah its a feature/bug in 2.1. It happens because of the light sensor and it happens in the media dock as well. Haven't tried the car dock, but its probably the same way.

    I reported it on the google code website.

    If you are rooted, try LEDs Hack. Its on the market, you can turn em on/off with the app or automatic when it is in a dock or connected to power. Otherwise, I do not know of a way to control them.
