    I'm loving the fact your start bar is "Groceries."

    Great work! I really DO HOPE that you didn't disassemble and unplug all that stuff while the computer was on, right? :D

    +1 for taking it apart... but i have a feeling i ripped one of the feet in half (unless its just glue)

    edit: nvm, the feet are just thin.

    Yeah, of course LOL... I had the whole chassis apart, I got lazy and left it like that for a day or two. It's all back together now ;)

    Yeah when you first take off those screw covers they do feel a bit like they're ripping, but hopefully they should have enough adhesive left to stick back on. :)

    I may have to do this to my G51J now, just got it and the lights are already killing me.

    At least having the option in software lets you party out with the lights (G50 lets you turn them off with Direct Console, but the G51 does not). To me they are an eyesore.

    Also the time between your reply and the previous one is 6 months, so you're gravedigging. But it is coincidental that I'm going to do this to my G51 that I just got yesterday. ;)

    Different strokes for different folks. At least I shared the info on how to do it. :p

    Personally I think it looks okay at best, but it's really obnoxious in places like a lecture hall, airport, bus terminal, etc. Kind of screams "I HAVE A GAMING LAPTOP" to everyone--not conducive to business or subtleness, two things I find I'm increasingly after.

    Though, really special people with too many USB cables make their laptops power custom (blacklight) LEDs. :p

    Bumping this since a lot of people (including me) are getting G50Vt-X5s as replacements for broken/black-screened G1S.

    I don't care about the lid lights when I'm using the laptop, since they're not very bright and I can't see them anyway. But having them FLASH when you put the laptop into sleep mode? What was Asus thinking?

    So, thanks for the instructions!

    Finally got around to doing this today. I didn't need to pull the bezel off entirely--I was able to disconnect the cable with the bezel still adhered around the camera.

    In any case, what a relief! I can now put the laptop to sleep without having it blink at me all night. Thanks to the OP!
