How do I turn off the unnecessary, battery draining, logo light on the lid of the Pavilion dv7?

Press F10 when you see the HP logo when the notebook is first powered on, then you'll enter the BIOS and have the ability to disable it.

There is not setting for it in the BIOS.

 

HP should be stripped of the "Energy Star" rating on the dv7 for this reason alone.

For the HDX16, there is no BIOS option for turning the logo light off; though there should be. The logo light is a goofy design choice on an EnergyStar product.

Re: How To Turn Off Logo Light on Pavilion dv7

I have an HP DV4-1225dx and I, too, would like to disable the lit HP logo as well as dim or turn off the media center lights. It is very annoying. If I could, I would scratch out the HP logo and create a defiled version for insisting on a lit logo. Then I could market my own brand of crap. I've had nothing but problems with this laptop. Over heating was just teh beginning.

 

Despite HP's recommendations of cleaning the vents (which I do on a regular basis - at least every couple of months - not only on my laptops but my desktop CPU fans and heat sinks and power supplies) the **bleep** thing gets super hot. If it weren't for a cooling pad, this thing would be toast long ago.

Additionally,

 

I purchased a dv6 in November 2009 and the HP logo light is literally burning a mark into my LCD screen! It is DEFINITELY NOT THE BACKLIGHT OF THE SCREEN.

 

It is a hilariously annoying design flaw. Not buying an HP again.
