That is to defeat the overdrive/lockup. Most people in most driving situations would just leave it alone.

No that hold button is actually for the auto-box to change down without using the kick down. This also saves more fuel. The longer u keep it in hold the more rev's u gain in the gear u are in, and u can red line it before pressing it again to release. When u press it again it will change to the next gear up.
