in a real mac the power idicator light fades in and out in sleep.
while cleaning a powerbook g4 i noticed the light and the powerswitch is on the same circuit.
so what i was thinking is if i hook the power led and the powerswitch into the same jumper for the power on the mobo. will i get the same effect?
im working on my 915gux mobo with working acpi.
i will test when i get a couple of spare jumpers and switches.
just wanted to know if anyone has done this or tried it yet.
*edit tried and it dosent work* darn

Many PCs have power LEDs that fade in and out in sleep anyway - my laptop does so you would jsut need to switch the wires or LEDs or something...

usually PC power led is blinking (and you can configure in bios) to get it fade in/out it should be possible with capacitor+resistance and even or a "bobine" (i said it in french as i don't have english word: long wire enrolled around isolent). i had done something like this at school but i can't remember how to achieve it, it's about 3 year from now
