I've tried searching Google and I can't find anything. I have windows xp. Recently my laptop battery died and so now my battery led light is constantly flashing amber, even when my laptop is off! How can I disable it because it's very distracting and I just can't take it! Aaiiieee!

Lol, thank you.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).
I have nightmares about computer glitches and bugs.

Black electrical tape or a drop of paint. Seriously, the LED is rather small and mounted in a small circuit board with a ribbon cable and solder traces, not a simple wire you can clip.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Covering it probably is the easy temporary measure, but you should replace the battery as soon as possible, this will solve the problem and get the laptop back to being portable.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I thought about covering it, but I was hoping there was an easy way to turn it off through the laptop software. Oh well, thanks again for your help.
