Does anyone know how to dim and/or turn off the light on the capacitive buttons on our Notes?

Not sure if you can dim it but you can turn it off.

Settings -> Display -> Touch key light duration -> Always off.

I should have looked there. Thanks. It's the next best thing.

Dim option would still be great for the battery. I thought how wasteful the capacitive light is looking at it in bright sunlight (couldn't see the light at all) and all I've read in the i717 forums about the screen being the biggest battery hog.

It was a great option on my Sensation Insertcoin ROM.

The 4 LEDs inside the capacitive buttons use very, very little power. Turning them off won't make a noticable difference in battery life. The millions of LEDs and control circuitry in the screen, that's a different story.

Just turn them off. It's easy enough to memorize the position of each of them after like a week, so at that point it's useless to have them illuminated. I almost wish you couldn't see them at all when they are off and just have a complete white lower Bezel. That would be awesome.
