    That's the way it's designed to work. It's off when the laptop is on and the display is on because you should be able to tell that that's the case. It's on when the display goes to sleep so you know it's not just open and powered off.

    thehellobob is correct.

    The power light on desktops is lit when the machine is on and pulses when asleep.
