p7-1174 - desktop unit
This system has a blue light that is constantly on when the unit is on and I keep my system on all of the time. Problem is, when I'm not using the computer and the light for the room is off, the room is still lit up with the blue light on and my wife would like it to go away. Is there anyway to disable this light?

I don't have a p7-1174 but I do have a p7-1026, which uses the same case and front bezel for the most part. Your computer has the blue light bar, while mine doesn't. The blue light bar may be operated by a separate LED or it could be an extension of the power switch and/or power LED assembly. Please review the HP instructions on "Removing/Replacing the Power Switch" to determine if it is separate from or part of the power switch and/or power LED.
