Well as it sounds it is related to google + and is a feature to authenticate user.

It can be greenifyed to avoid wake lock.
Do not press "Thanks" button!

So...does anyone know what this is about or is there a secret button on the N5 that magically shows a fingerprint scanner on the front over the LED notification light (;
