    I'm afraid there is some confusion: what you're seeing is not a notification LED (since the Lumia 730 does not have such an LED); what you're seeing is most probably the proximity sensor InfraRed LED, used to determine if there's anything near the surface of your screen (directly on top that sensor) - it's the one that turns your screen off during calls.

    So, no, it can't be activated (since it doesn't exist).

    It will not come with Windows 10 Mobile (for the same reason).

    And, for the arrival of Windows 10 Mobile, no specific release date has been announced at this point, all we know is that it should arrive towards the end of 2015 through early 2016.

    There is a small LED light on my Lumia 520 but it only works while I'm calling someone. BUT - when I've updated to Windows 10 Mobile, it was working as a notification light but one coloured.

    Again, that is a proximity sensor, and no, it wasnt working as a notification light. Either you're confused or simply making things up.

    I think your best option for notifications when the screen is off is to enable Glance. I'm not a Windows Phone user (yet), but someone else here will give you a bit more guidance on this I'm sure.

    Yes, Lumia 730 does have a hardware LED present and it will be activated in windows mobile 10 in future for notification purposes.
