    We've got an MX3282a at church... older, so no blue LEDs but the flashing PFL LEDs can get a bit much sometimes...

    My BT Home Hub is just the same, so bright I chuck a towel over it at night otherwise it illuminates the whole room.

    I've got a set of speakers that do exactly the same. A really powerful blue LED on the front that, at night, can light the entire room up, often calling for my other half to shout at me for leaving the PC on when I'm not in there, because she thinks its the screen.

    Can't believe the level of response to this thread.

    Maybe we should start a protest group 'No to Blue LED's'

    Oh Dear Ric, you ordered all blue really didn't you and just one red one came and instead of making a fuss you said you would keep it and didn't deliberately order them that way?

    Every stoopid piece of kit you buy nowadays comes with a blue fan... 2 came with my Coolermaster case, 1 on my Xalman GPU cooler and 1 on my Xalman CPU cooler. In addition, another 2 non-LED fans came with the case but I needed one more and Scan had sold out of non-LED fans so I went for a red Coolermaster one and procededed to move all the fans about to get that arrangement!

    I've looked into 'disabling' the LEDs... it isn't possible At least none of them flash!

    Get a digital camera (a camera phone will do) and point it at the transmitter end of a remote control. Activate the remote control.

    Report back with your results.

    Good, eh?

    Ok, we will let you off, myself and Mike were worried that you had actually spent a lot of time planning and thinking about it and made it like a teaching resource

    My case doesn't have flashing LEDs in it, just lots of blue ones and a fish tank on the side of it

    What are you all complaining about. Nothing wrong with a few lights on your 'puter!
