The Acer Aspire 7738 has a large blue light emitting power button, top left on the keyboard. Its light is rather distracting and I want to turn it off.

How can I disable this light?

two options:

cut the wire of the LED (will void the warranty!) or use some masking tape on the LED.

I agree with the tape suggestion. Easy, doesn't mess with warranty, and reversible. – Troggy Jan 29 '10 at 6:25
