    Find the light in question and change the fall off values so 0% is HIGHER than 50%

    the 50 percent falloff distance can NEVER be a higher number than the 0 percent falloff distance. The 50% falloff distance is the distance at which the light fades to 50% of its brightness. The 0% falloff distance is where the light dissapears. Just go into the light's properties and look under "50% falloff distance" and "0% falloff distance". you can keep both values set to 0 if you want, but if you are gonna enter values, make sure the 50% is a higher number than the 0%.
