How do you turn it off then?

I'm not at home at moment so I can't look, sorry. But I think when you go into the OSD menu there will be an option for the power LED and you can change it to "auto dim" or something similar? If no one else posts about it I'll do it tomorrow night and post.

Options are dim, on and auto-off. The Auto-off option do nothing. The led turns on even after restarting the monitor. I did try to wait like 30 seconds incase it would turn off after some time but it did not. Tape works fine so i will stick to that.

Having a weird issue. I purchased this monitor and I've been changing options with G-Sync / ULMB.

Recently after going back and forth between nvidia drivers I can select G-Sync on and ULMB is also turned on. I can turn ULMB on / off on the monitor OSD so I know ULMB is switching but is G-Sync on / off just a visual glitch in the control panel? On the newest driver if I turn G-Sync on then the monitor forces ULMB off and I see the color shift as well as OSD showing ULMB off. On an older driver I can literally turn both on and off at the same time. Not sure what is going on but after removing 372.70 and going to 368.81 multiple times and being able to do this I am wondering if anyone has experienced similar issue?
Edit-In nvidia control panel I chose display g-sync indicator to see if g-sync was really on, in fullscreen game g-sync was enabled and ulmb now turned off. Closing the game ulmb turned back on. Changing g-sync to fullscreen and windowed forced ULMB completely off and I can't turn both on again. Reinstalling the driver lets me do it all over. I guess this is just a bug and I will leave it alone.

Is there a way to find out firmware version from the box (and what version is the good/fixed one)? Going to retail shop to check it out tomorrow.
BzzT!

"Auto off" should work, and yes, you have to wait a really long time before it turns off. About 50 seconds. However, that long wait is only when you've just turn 'Auto off' on. Normally the led turns off about 5 seconds after you turn on the monitor.

there is an OSD setting to shut the light off

It never stays on for me more than 15-30 seconds

If they can even make that release date. Eye tracking is a neat inclusion but, it's definitely factored into cost if the one that's available now is any indication.
