    Is there a way to disable the blue led indicator lights from being on, because they can become quite annoying at times. I am a proud owner of a Vostro 1400,

    Thanks

    I find the blue LED light on my 65w AC adapter annoying. Its so bright it can light up a dark room.

    You could physically disconnect the LED wires if they are not soldered on.

    thanks napalm, but i'm looking for a way to do it withing the software or bios.
    Maybe there is a program that I dont know of. I'm not looking to open the laptop itself.

    just checked out the A03 bios. can't find anything that looks helpful there... it would be cool if notebook hardware control could do it, but i don't know if it can.

    yeah it would be cool if at least it could make them dimmer at least. That would rock.

    I doubt there's an easy way to turn them off via software. It's a case of function following form, I guess. I think Dell would have done better to use something other than superbright LEDs (who needs to see their laptop's status lights from two miles away?), or maybe they could have placed them above the keyboard so they could at least serve as a keyboard lamp.

    the only way to turn them off is to unplug them.
