How do I keep the lights on for the Art Asylum Enterprise D model?
 
I just received it today, and it's awesome!

But I have a question. I've seen pictures of it on the stand with the "lights only" mode with nobody touching it, but the only way I've been able to turn on the lights is to press the light button and hold my finger on it, but once I let go the lights go off. So what exactly am I supposed to do to keep it lighted up without me holding the button? Thanks.

Use a tape :)

Get a pin, pen, tweezers, something small and push it on the button. The recess is too shallow to allow for a full press if your finger pushes against the rest of the hull. Just push it down until you hear a click and the lights stay on, after that just grab whatever again and push it to turn it off.

If you have long fingernails, you can usually press the button in a way to keep it on without needing a tool of somekind.

If you're handy, you could replace the push-button with a small slide type switch from Radio Shack or a good hardware store.

Thank you! It worked!

And thanks everyone else for all your responses!
