What do you mean light up? If you downloaded Aim from, i really wouldnt suggest that you use that, iChat is much better and the icon will bounce when you get a IM.

or AdiumX is also really good.

Aim for mac from is horrible and hasn't been developed for in many years yet they leave it up. It would be best to get a newly devloped aim client, either adium ichat or one of the many others discussed on the forums. You will find a list if you search for it as well as what people think of each one and who uses what.
