    Turn off apple symbol
    Hi, i was just wondering if anyone knows if it's in any way possible to turn off the apple symbol light on the back of my macbook? Preferrably by not going inside it. I have put a sticker over the light and it shows trough the sticker

    There is no way to turn it off. It is lit by the LCD's backlight, so the only way to "turn it off" is to turn off your display on the notebook.

    Actually putting a dell sticker on a mac automatically puts it into self destruct mode and you have 10 seconds to get as far away as possible.
