Power Button light on XPS M1530 running Vista

By sjamieson ·
Power button light on XPS M1530 Vista does not reflect the state of the system, (ie. powered up, standby, etc). It lights up momentarily on power up, but that's it. Some of my users keep pressing the button when the screen doesn't turn on immediately, so it would be nice for them to have some indication that the system is in fact booting up. I was under the impression that this indicator light used to flash or stay on solid depending on the state of the system.

Is this for one PC or several?

If one PC is doing this, then I would wonder if the LED board with the switch is faulty

Note that in the OS you define power events for the button, such that you can hibernate, standby or power-down when you press the button. Not sure if this affects LED state...
