Need help with APC Performance SurgeArrest PMF83VT-GR

Hi, I didn't know where to ask so I will ask in this thread. I have this protection more than 4 years, everything works ok. On this APC I have connected my PC speakers, my PC and monitor. I have two question for you experts:

- From the start I bought it Ground OK light doesn't light up when computer is turned on, light is only turned on when computer is turned off, I think it is because old house installation. I tried also on other electrical outlet in my house, same situation. Is that a big deal?

- Yesterday I connected Hair dryer (1600W) to this APC and when hair dryer is turned on on max level 2, overload light activated on APC. Why is that? When I returned to level 1 light immediately disappeared. Is something wrong with my APC or this is normal behaviour?

PMF83VT-GR this is 2300 Watts Max .... Hair dryer (1600W) this is on average wattage, at start up this does at a spike of 4800W.
