    What make these compasitive buttons light up?? I know every now and then they catch my eyes when they light. And is there a way to make the stay on while my screen is on?

    To the right of the ear speaker is a sensor that measures how dark your surroundings are. If it senses that its dark then the buttons will light up, if it's bright then the buttons with turn off. Put your finger over it to test it out. I'm not sure if there is a way to always have them light up regardless of lighting conditions however.

    No need to get wise; we all get what the OP is talking about.

    Dude, you're a bit light for that crap here. Not all of us can type or spell. Back it down and enjoy your new invisible friends.

    To the OP, I did a quick seach on Google and saw what might be an answer at lighted buttons - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Go to display and change from auto adjust to whatever percentage of brightness works for you.

    This is for a different Android, but it may work on the Bionic.

    Are you sure Phil is trolling, or maybe he's genuinely curious? In any case, it does help to use the correct terminology to help with things more quickly. Not trying to be a grammar nazi or anything here, just stating. :)

    Nobody's perfect. If you don't understand something, tell them in a polite matter. But I think most of us understand most typos..

    I see nothing wrong in your post or questions... no reason to be sorry! I do feel that others should not make assumptions about others legitimate questions. To ask what capacitive buttons are, no matter what the typos, is a legitimate question. I am often explaining to my family and friends when they're shopping for tablets or phones the difference between resistive touch, capacitive touch, hard buttons, soft buttons, etc, etc, etc. It is not an unusual question.
