    The light you see - is it a white circle that flashes slowly? That's the sleep light. It won't go off unless you shut down the computer completely.

    Its not the sleep light, its on the bottom. Not lower right, the bottom right.

    It would be helpful if you could post a picture of this. I too would have thought it would be the sleep indicator light. But now that you say the light is underneath the unit, I'm goin' Wha? *Scratches head*

    What peripherals do you have plugged in? If you're shutting down the iMac, then there is no power going to it hence, no lights should be on.

    I'd follow MHC's advice and post a pic.

    That is right where the ambient light sensor should be. Maybe apple put an LED there instead of the sensor by mistake.

    I don't have an AppleCare thing, does that mean it will cost money for me to get it fixed? :O
