Try the apple website. Or try googling it. If you can't find anything let me know and I will look further.

Are you just talking about the Power LED? There is on like that on the mini, it is pretty easy to unplug if you wanted to, I would assume it would be similar on the iMac

You can go to radtech.us and get the imac cover. It costs a little but looks sharp when its on. Plus it should get rid of all the light.

I know I am a little late, but don't you mean.

A billion candle watt spotlight on Imac?

I was just wondering. :p

Same on my iBook, I drape my mousepad over the front of the iBook to block the light at night...

They should really include a switch-off or dimmer option for the little lamp...

I use mine as a night light. My wife has her iBook on one side of the room and I have my powerbook on the other side.

That look like two light houses.

duct tape solves most everything

take it apart down to that light and solder a liite switch between the led and the board if it has those little micro leds on the board then it will be more complicated but it is still slightly posible

http://www.casemodgod.com/cmg/Howto-story--26.html

that link will be close to what you want to do just in a diff aplication.

if you dont know how to solder then you should be able to contact your local vo-tech center and they can teach you how hands on style
