    I have JT's clean rom w/non voodoo kernel and using LauncherPro as my home screen. Noticed that my soft keys seem to light and stay lit if I get an unread message. I cannot seem to find any setting anywhere related to that and would prefer to turn that off to not waste any power. I have not downloaded any noLED type programs. I did change the timeout on the soft keys when loading JT but thought that was strictly related to the timeout. Anyone know where this setting may be located? Maybe a feature of JT I did not know about?

    There would have been another option when you downloaded JT's for BLN. I think by default it's on so you just must have missed it to turn it off.

    if you go into ROM Manager to "Download ROM" then to "jt1134" then to "Change Softkey Behavior" and then select "Download" and then "Disable" and it will download and flash that. I don't believe you need to wipe data or anything, but make a backup of your data before you do this just in case. I had this issue when I first installed JT's rom, but this takes care of it.

    On my rom I have a "backlight notification settings" app in the app drawer. Within that app, you can check or uncheck "activate notification"

    is that part of the DJ05 rom? I definitely don't have it for JT's superclean DI01 rom and had to flash that part of the rom to get rid of the softkey notifications.

    This is actually a feature that I love. For some odd reason that I will never understand Samsung decided to opt-out of a LED on this device. Having the buttons light up for me is great. I actually wish some smart person would make an app that does this with a few more options. For example, make one certain soft key light up, or make them come on in a sequence. Either way it's something I'm glad to have.

    coming from a BB I wanted LED notification too, and I did try the BLN, but it really does drain the battery quite a bit. One of the first times I tried it I got an email after I went to sleep and the BLN stayed lit all night and drained quite a bit of the battery. after that, well... I learned to live without it.

    and thanks for the name of that app Phooky, I didn't know that there was something like that out there. but since OP doesn't want the BLN at all, I think re-flashing in ROM manager is probably the best route for him.

    Thanks for the replies...was going to try this all out when I got messages that my SD card was corrupted and to make a long story short, ended up in the FC loop from hell. Thank god for this forum...after carefully reading the instructions, I am back to stock phone and going to see if they will replace it with a new one (only 4 days old). Not sure what would cause my card to be corrupted but not taking any chances. I will watch those options more closely this time when I install JT.

    Need to get BLN from the market place.

    If you pony up the 75 cents, or whatever it is, you can disable the BLN for certain times. I personally charge my phone at night, so it doesn't matter if the lights are on all night.

    I'm having this problem as well - using Super Clean v0.9 which I downloaded direct from XDA.

    I tired BLN and it says my kernel version is 0 and I need a kernel version 6. I also tried Blinky from XDA and it says ROM not supported.

    So I went to ROM Manager>downloads>Super Clean>soft key and it only had an option to disable, so I'm assuming I have the correct ROM version. Any ideas? This is my brother's Fascinate and I'm not too familiar with soft key mods.

    You need to use a kernel that supports BLN, like JT's or StupidFast, then get BLN Control from the market to turn it on.

    Ah - I thought Super Clean came with a custom kernel. Will try that out, thanks.

    Since you're running Superclean .9, which is a DJ05 ROM, make sure to get a DJ05 kernel like JT's 1212 or StupidFast 1.54

    Worked fine for me when I was testing it using BLN Control.
