    On my Samsung Ativ S, the navigation bar lights up if you touch the screen but turns off after a few seconds even if the screen is still on. With my 1520 the lights always stay on when the screen is on. They are very bright and wondering why they dont turn off to save battery. Same fur you guys?

    The solution here worked for me : forums.windowscentral.com/windows-phone-8-1/307060-lights-navigation-keys.html
    It's really strange that not everyone experience this bug.

    I tried the suggestion in the link. Didn't work. It was a pain to reset and reinstall all the apps but I was desperate. Didn't work. Any other ideas? The always lit up navigation keys are annoying me

    Ok on Microsoft forums someone said you cannot turn off the lights. Can anyone confirm if the navigation lights do auto turn off after a short period of inactivity or if they always stay on until you turn off the display?

    If you uninstalled device hub without opening it the button lights will go out when battery saver is ON otherwise they are on all the time

    Can you prove this? Show a video that the lights go off? Everywhere I read they say the lights stay on and are not meant to go off. Even better denim..

    The lights are supposed to match your screen illumination level. The bug makes them max, the normal behavior is to follow what you set under brightness and/or auto-adjust brightness and then take cues from the ambient light sensor. They normally are on whenever your phone screen is awake except during Glance Screen.

    Turning them completely off might be possible in Battery Saver settings, I'm not sure.

    The latest Device Hub update has fixed the bug. Capacitive lights are now disabled when Battery saver is turned on.
    Coming to the point as to when the lights will be on, I think it is dependant on the light around you. If the sensor thinks there is enough light the keys don't light up and if it doesn't the capacitive lights turn on. This is my guess, not necessarily correct.

    maybe open device hub?
    restart the device?

    I'm sure, it was the update that fixed it.
    My phone's in battery saver mode with the key lights off and the screen dimmed as I type this, didn't do that for a very long time.

    I can post a photo sometime soon.. (also make sure to wait a bit, seems to lag a second or two, oddly, since it was instant before it was broken)

    Navigation lights do auto turn off after a short period of inactivity on my Lumi 1020, 1520.

    How many seconds after not touching the screen do the capacitive lights turn off? Are you on Denim? Why is it for most the lights do not turn off and for some they do? Why such inconsistencies? We must solve this puzzle.

    they do not auto-turn off after a timeout.

    not themselves.

    the behavior is tied to the display and idle timeout. eventually the display dims, shortly before turning off - and when the display dims, the buttons turn off.

    Here is a temporary fix. If you want to read in bed or want to watch a film (eg Netflix) in the dark and do not want the bright navigation bar lights annoying you, go into Battery Saver settings and turn on "Now until next charge" to turn off the lights. Remember to revert back the setting when done, if you want.
