No, I'm sure it has nothing to do with BIOS settings, because I've used the exact same motherboard in 3 different cases, with the same BIOS settings and the flashing power led worked in the other 2 cases.

Do you have a flashing led when your computer is in sleep mode?

Actually its because rather than a standard power led that has a motherboard header the led's on the front panel get their power from the molex that is also powering the fan controller. As for a mod you would need to make a new front panel at least for your buttons and front io and put in a power led.

That makes sense!

You've given me an idea. The small two wire, + & - LED connector, that usually connects to the MB header pins, is not being used because of the Molex, power, just as you said.

Suppose I were to simply plug in a standard two wire power LED connector into the MB header pins for the power led, with leads long enough to reach the front of the case, with an LED at the end. Then just mount the LED so it could be seen through one of the unused external bay grills.

That should work, no?

Thanks, I appreciate the help. I probably would have thought of this on my own, but it would have taken somewhere between 3 days, and 3 months, so I appreciate the thoughts.

I'd rather not cannibalize one of my other cases, because I'll just need to repair it anyway sometime down the road. I'll check Newegg, Radio Shack, etc.. I'm sure I can buy the parts very inexpensively. If not, then removing what I need from an old case is always an option.

Thanks again!!!


EDIT: For anyone who may be interested, the standard 3 pin female fan connector fits the two Power LED header pins on the motherboard perfectly. All you need to do is use the 2 outer pins. So all I needed was a 2' fan extension cable of which I had several. Cut the male connector off of one end, and solder a 5v blue LED in it's place. Run the blue LED to a convenient place near a grill opening, and bingo, I have a blinking sleep LED again. Total cost $00.00.

Just buy an led Indicator and hook it to the Mobo and Plant it somewhere on the case. Test it first though. Before you drill a pilot hole.
