    My apple logo stays lit even when I close the lid. I don’t want the MBP to go to sleep because when it does the network connection gets turned off and I can no longer access it through Apple TV, Air video and Splashtop. But the light is bothering my wife at night and I have to cover it up. I installed No sleep or something like that and it seemed ok. I think the light stayed on since I installed OS X ML.
    Can I turn it off without putting it to sleep? :confused:

    Yes, turn the screen backlight off. The light that comes out the Apple logo is the same light that powers the screen.

    You should be able to adjust the time it takes the screen to turn off in the power settings. I usually have is set for about 15 min. It doesnt mess with anything else, just the screen.

    Thanks for the advice.
    I'll try it when I get home.

    Yup, turn the screen to sleep, but keep the device to never sleep itself.

    That shouldn't affect the things you've mentioned.

    There is no logo light. It is the LCD backlight spilling thru a cut hole in the case.
