You should set the icons for the various button states if necessary. See the following methods of AbstractButton (the superclass)

 void setDisabledIcon(Icon disabledIcon)
 void setDisabledSelectedIcon(Icon disabledSelectedIcon)
 void setIcon(Icon defaultIcon)
 void setPressedIcon(Icon pressedIcon)
 void setRolloverIcon(Icon rolloverIcon)
 void setSelectedIcon(Icon selectedIcon)

but it's the who;e button i don't think it has todo with the icon when i press the button it's gray when i releases it it fine again

small test app
public class t extends JFrame
{
 private Color purple                = new Color(100,102,156);
 JLabel l = new JLabel("22.gif");
 JButton b = new JButton("www," ,new ImageIcon("22.gif"));
t()

{
   b.setOpaque(false);

   getContentPane().setLayout(null);
      getContentPane().setBackground(purple);

      b.setBounds(10,10,100,100);
      getContentPane().add(b);

      setSize(800,600);
          setResizable(false);
            this.setLocation(100,100);

      setVisible( true);
}


public static void main(String[] args)
      {
       new t ();
      }
}

You should maybe set the pressed icon. Can you post that gif somewhere public?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Yes, i understand what you mean now. The default behaviour of a button is to turn down when pressed and is indeed nothing to do with the icon. What do you want to happen?
