    Not sure of the correct name for them, but it used to be that when I turned battery saver on they would go out but now they stay lit all the time even when I put battery saver on. Did this change with 8.1/Cyan? They are annoying when using the phone at night.

    It's some bug, you're not the first to experience it.

    On another note, are you enrolled in the Developer Preview by any chance?

    There's a thread on reddit about this bug. It is very annoying in low light as the buttons are so bright.

    Hi guys, this issue is related to Device Hub. Yes, weird but true exactly!

    So, -the only one- solution is:

    1) Reset your phone (required)
    2) When resetting is completed, complete your installation steps
    3) When the phone is ready to use, quickly go to Settings > Date+Time
    4) Set the year like 2150 or more
    5) Go to Settings, tap the Device Hub
    6) Uninstall it
    7) Set the date as auto again

    Problem will be solved.

    Never open Device Hub even once! Uninstall it and don't install again.

    p.s. If you open Device Hub even once, battery saver crashes and your issue comes over again. Then you must reset your phone to solve it.
    If you open Device Hub once, uninstalling it will not solve this issue. You will have to reset your phones...

    Mine's working. What I did was to hard reset reset my phone and during set up I didn't connect to wifi and microsoft account. After set up, I went to date and time and I changed year to 2200. After that I went to device hub and it asked me to uninstall or buy, I uninstalled it and rebooted the phone. After that I connected my accounts and updated the apps. Battery saver brightness is working for me after this procedure.
