    The logo is cutout in the LCD lid which allows the backlight to be visible (bleed).

    1) You can dim the backlight to a very low level. It would make the logo less visible.
    2) You can bend (open) the laptop's lid to its backward limits meaning you'd have to hover over your laptop to see the screen and pull the laptop closer to get a proper top view of the screen.
    3) You can use an external monitor if available, backlight is off, the logo is off also.
    4) You can place a book on its book ends up against the laptop lid to block the logo.

    Glue/Tape an external hard drive over the logo. This both hides the logo, and now you have an extra hard drive attached to your notebook!

    Cut out an apple from cardboard, get one of those suction cups. 1 side suction cup, other side sticky pad. Stick the pad to the apple cardboard that is the same size as the stupid glowing apple. Stick the suction cup to the back of the apple laptop.

    Problem solved.

    Get one of those snap on cases for the notebook. Cut out a black piece of paper in the shape of an apple. Place the piece of paper on top of the clear part in the case. Snap case onto apple.
