    Ok, so this might not be the best place, but here goes.

    We have a stack of 8 MacMini's all set up as servers. All headless.

    Is there any trick to make the LED flash in a particular way so that it can be identified in the server room?

    Cheers

    Nope, I think that LED is power indicator (or read/write indicator), in either case I'm unaware of any app that lets you control it.

    Why not have the Min in question play a song, and crank the volume up to hear it?

    Put the machine to sleep. The LED will pulsate.

    Didn't want to sleep the machine as its in use.

    Thanks for the music idea! That'll work a treat!

    Cheers

    Alternatively, you can use the "say" command in Terminal to have the computer speak something. Works perfectly well over SSH too.
