Re: Lenovo Power Button Light

Find it's brightness under /sys/class/leds, mine is at /sys/class/leds/tpacpi::power/brightness, then set this to zero to confirm it works:

# echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/tpacpi::power/brightness

If that works, you just need to make that automatic at boot up.  There are a few approaches for this, though I think a systemd-tmpfiles approach might be the currently most recommended.

I don't have tpacpi::power, it's for me:

ls /sys/class/leds/
input3::capslock  input3::numlock  input3::scrolllock  phy0-led

can be "phy0-led" for me??

Re: Lenovo Power Button Light

No, phy0-led is a network card indicator.  It seems your thinkbook isn't covered by the thinkpad module or any other default kernel modules.  There may be a third party module for it, or you might be able to find some other sys interface that covers it.  Check the following for candidates:

find -L /sys/class/ -maxdepth 4 -iname brightness

Of course there's also the simple low-tech solution of a bit of electrical tape.
