    Hi guys,

    I bought a LED light strip for my mac mini which is behind the monitor but when I put the Mac mini to sleep the light stays on. Is there any way to switch it off without unplugging it or shutting the mac down?

    Cheers

    Yes, you can take a hammer to it. Then it will turn off.

    Honestly, do you want us to read your mind? Care to tell us what specific light strip you bought? How did you connect it? If you're going to ask a question, then you need to provide as much information as possible.

    Not trying to be rude; just trying to show you that you'll leaving a lot to guess work.

    No, it was not obvious. What brand/model strip. Some of them can be controlled via scripts.
