    So I just got my new 15" powerbook from apple, and I was just wondering if the power button on it is supposed to be illuminated while the pb is on.

    unfortunately no.. i asked the same question wondering if mine was broken.. but it does not light up. I wish it did though as in a noisey room it could make it easier to tell if it turned on as my screen does not light up immediately (takes about 5 seconds or so)

    Yeah... the 5 second thing freaks me out. I wish the Apple logo came up sooner. If the sound is muted you don't get the "happy mac sound" so you're really in the dark. No intent on the pun. ;-)

    freaked me out first time I pulled mine out of the box too!

    I for one now am glad thought that it isn't permanently lit...
    there are alot of times I don't want extra lights / distractions.
