It's been 4 years of Galaxy S I9000 and no developer has yet developed a method to turn off the capacitive button light. This is very necessary as it could help with the very low battery capacity. I strongly request developers to concentrate their skills on this, to disable the light and thereby prevent the irritation to eye during the night & save a lot of juice.
Please Help
Thanks

Pardon me if I misunderstood your question.
If you just want the buttons not to turn on when receiving an sms (i.e. acting as notification led) then CyanogenMod has that option, just go into Settings->CyanogenMod->Audio->Quiet hours (or something to that effect), set from, say, 2:00 to 1:59 (all day minus 1') and check last option (Dim LED or something).
If you want them not to light up under any circumstance, well, I don't think I'd use that setting but I guess it'd be nice to have!

Try adding qemu.hw.mainkeys =0 to the build.prop file of your phone. Just let me know if that helped. PS: If you're using Nightlies, the build.prop file keeps resetting.

Say, are you on a Custom ROM?

On certain custom ROMs, they do act as a notification LED. So, that stays on until you turn in the phone. So all you have to is go to Settings>Display>Notification Lights (it will be called something similar) and then turn it off. Some ROMs could have a different way to turn it off. Also, I don't think that you lose battery when they turn on as you click on the buttons.

Cheers! The thanks button is right there... Just saying..
