    Hey all,
    The sleep LED on my macbook (core duo) seems to be stuck in the on position. That is, the little white led on the front of the case remains on while the computer is running and the display is on. The light is steady and not pusling, as it is when the display powers down.
    Any thoughts on why that might be the case? Is the sleep LED attached to anything important that might be causing this problem, or that might lead to problems down the road?
    Thanks in advance!

    I've restarted a number of times. Even tried a pram reset, all to no avail...

    I doubt it's anything to worry about, but have you tried a SMC reset? :)

    My powerbook 15" just starting doing something similar today. The LED is either on, or flickering on and off randomly while the computer is running. If I lift up the machine or move it around it will stop for a while, or start back up if it wasn't.

    It's driving me crazy.
