Thanks for all your help. I will keep you posted as soon as I have something new.
I have two unkown led-ids for the new m17x. They most likle are used for the power button. To test this I wrote a small test app which basically sets all leds to white and sets the color of the 2 unkown ids to red and green. Most likly those colors are only used when your laptop runs on ac power. If it runs on battery or charges a battery other colors will be used. (which where not set by me) so please make shure that your laptop runs on ac-power and does not charche any battery when running this app.
So I need someone with the new m17x to run this app and report to me where the red and where the green color appears.
Edit:Already got a result by E-Mail no need to do this any more.
Working already on the next test.
I have the next test app. This time all possible power states are tested. Each power state gets a diferent color. I know that there are 6 power states but I only can think of 5.
standby on battery
standby on ac power
hibernate does not make much sense as the laptop shoulnd't use any power on hibernate.
If you run the program it will set a different color for each known power state. The following colors are used:
It would be nice if you could test on which power state which color is displayed for the power button and report the results to me.
Edit: Maybe the 6. state is low battery?
Plugged in - goes green.
unplugged - looks like both blue and green are lighting up.
Charging - blue
standby a/c power - blue
standby battery - looks orange/yellow/green. I said orange, but wife said those 3.
Note that I am colorblind, so I asked for her input as well.
This is only for the m17x?
