Hello to everybody!
I have the A1 tablet. Generally it is perfect on terms value pre money but I wonder about two things:
2. Can we block/lock periodically this three buttons. E.g. When she is playing the games, she push accidentally one of the button and the game is interrupted.
Thanks for any advices and tips

I also found it hard to locate the buttons and was using A1 "geography" to locate them (the home button is just above the right end of the SD card slot, the menu button is just above the left side of the slot, and the back button is just above the charging LED). Still tough in the dark until I bought a case that "frames" the buttons. Now I never miss-hit unless it is out of the case. The case is the J-Kase for the A1 (available on Amazon). It also has slots that act like a stand so that it supports itself (better in landscape than portrait orientation) so you don't have to hold it.

HA, thaks for answers.
J-Kase maybe you will not believe but Amazon is not operating In Poland, so purchase is hard to consider presently ;-( And A1 is to fresh to fiond the case in other place.

For the Back and Menu capacitive buttons, I find myself "swiping" from the outer edge of the table towards the middle until the buttons light up... it is not ideal, but has been helpful for me.
However, it is my Daughter's tablet, and she is just too young to figure that out, so she will often hit the button twice as well.

Take a dab of pink or white nail polish? So she can see it in the dark.
Gasp! Deface an IdeaPad A1? Sacreligious! It's a good idea, but most people put skins, cases and protectors on their tablets and phones. You may be drummed out of the tablet forum (LOL).

Hi. Yup, what were they thinking. Anyway, maybe somebody could write an app that turns on the button lites. I have seen apps that turn on the led light for the camera, it was called the flashlight app. The other way it will be fixed is when they upgrade to a current OS. The buttons move onto the live screen and stay on all the time. Any word on that. This upgrade was recently made to another basic tablet I have, the vizio 8" er and the upgrade really made the thing a much better tablet, especially the browser, plus it runs faster now.

perhaps a small thin rectangle of sticky paper (from a label or somthing), and put beneath the button, so as to underline where the button is. Could look reasonably smart still?
