Okay, so my ASUS laptop has this blue LED thing on the bottom. It only works/blinks if you have ASUS' checkmail utility enabled, as well as having Microsoft Outlook installed. Well the software tends to bug out. Then I discovered a plugin for Pidgin which lights up the LED when you get an instant message, however...it will only work for Linux.
This is it http//koti.mbnet.fi/simom/pidgin/led-notification/
And it even states it's supposed to work with that blue LED.
Okay, so is there any software that I can use to keep that blue LED enabled, or flash or something, ... also for Winamp, is there a plugin that will light up all four LEDs and flash them randomly or something?
That would be awesome.
Oh, and I need this for Vista, of course.
Edit I was searching and a lot of people have been editing that Chkmail program, but I don't want this for email, I just want it to light up. D
LOL, what is it with you and your overwhelming desire to have flashing lights on your computer and systray?
Okay, so I found this http//www.highlandsun.com/hyc/leds.zip
From here http//www.highlandsun.com/hyc/
And I extracted the files, opened command prompt, ran the executable, and then this showed up. This is just for toggling the LED. I don't know if it works with Vista though. It shows this "usage leds.exe M|T|W 0|1"
LOL at dmorris. D
leds.exe is a command-line tool to manually toggle the LED's. It isn't much use by itself unless you script something to run it. His ChkMail utility is used to make e-mail clients use the LED's.
He says it works with XP. You can try it on Vista -- depending on the API or driver it's using, it might work. Don't know till you try...

Yeah, he modified the original Chkmail program made by ASUS. I installed that because it came with with my laptop, it tends to crash. But I don't want it just for email, I want that thing lit up permanently. D + the winamp plugin for blinking all four of the leds. There's gotta be some way to do it. (
It has to do with the file /proc/acpi/asus/mled
mled is for the mail blue led, wled is the organge wireless LED, i'm unsure about the other two. (charging and power)
I mean looking here http//ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=64495 ... obviously shows that people know how to program these LEDs to do things ... but can't do this in Windows? (
