    Droid Multimedia Dock + 2.1

    So I've noticed that while on the multimedia dock, the screen goes much darker (finally), however the buttons are still lite up. The back, menu, home, search buttons are lite up.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Kinda makes it hard to sleep at night with the phone buttons so bright...

    I did get them to turn off one night, not sure how though. actually, I think I let my battery die then put it in dock. lights didnt turn on all night. maybe that's the trick! let the battery die before bed time. anyone care to try this out to verify?

    ideally, i'd still like to have the clock show up very dimly, but have everything else off.

    Download "LEDs Hack" from the market. Works great. You can turn off the LED's while charging or docked. Have to be rooted to use.

    Well, in another post about 5 minutes ago, someone had a great suggestion. Before you put your phone in the multimedia dock, turn the phone off. As soon as it goes in the cradle the phone will automatically power up (must be plugged into a.c.) and the lights don't come on. I've been complaining about this myself for a long time, but just tried it out, and voila, lights out!

    Here's the link to the other thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...edia-dock.html

    Does the Droid have to go into "dock" mode when its placed in the dock? I like to use a different alarm clock app called Night Clock (which does the same, similar functions, but it does dim everything while plugged in) but was considering getting the dock just so it stood on its side.

    If you turn the phone off then put it in the dock it will start back up without the lights...but...if you use the home screen or something they will turn back on, however.
