    The LEDs for the 4 buttons on the bottom of my Droid are on sometimes, off most of the time. There seems to be no pattern for when they are on or off. My phone has been sitting on the desk for a while now and they've flashed on for a few seconds and then back off without being touched.

    I've gone back and forth between Sholes, Bugless Beast and now Smoked Glass roms, I've had LEDs Hack installed and uninstalled at different points and now I don't know where I am or what the cause could be, and I really don't want to go through a factory reset. Any ideas?

    I *think* this is a bug even in the default image. To get your LEDs back, disable and re-enable automatic brightness.

    Huh. Well, I thought it worked, but when I locked and unlocked the phone they didn't come back on. They do come on any time I change the brightness at all, though. Until I lock it.

    It is a bug. If you change brightness that will work, but just as easy hit the power button, close screen and open it up. They will come back on again.

    I could swear they used to work the way they were supposed to. It only bothers me when I'm in the dark and can't see them, but I can still get by so I'm not too worried about it.
