I have a plastic, 2009, Macbook. For as long as I've had it, when it's on, and not closed, the white light on the front was on.
When asleep, it "breathed".
After the upgrade, now it comes on at boot, but then goes off. While hooked up to an external and closed, it's on.
Still "breathes" when asleep.
Was something changed with Yosemite? Is something wrong with it?
Coconut Battery thinks everything is OK.

I don't know about the power settings on the MacBook changing, but the entire boot up visual sequence for Yosemite has changed. The first time I booted into Yosemite with my iMac I thought something was wrong until I learned later that it was normal.

It probably is a change. There's no need for the white light to be on when the machine is in use, so Apple probably just stopped making it light up.

Glad to know I wasn't the only one with that experience. At first I thought it was because I was loading from an external USB drive which was much slower than my SSD. Then I found out it wasn't that at all.

OT but I've had it with Yosemite. Lost wifi 5 times in 2 hours this morning. So, currently making fresh backup and going back to Mavericks (again).
Put it back on last week after the update to 10.1, figured maybe it'll be a little better.
Also a little difficult to help anyone with it on here without it.
Nope, actually worse. Not a big fan of the cartoon interface anyway so there's that.
Also having a problem with the external monitor and system sleep. Wake it back up and it cant decide which monitor to make main.
They're mirrored but when lid closed it "optimizes" for the eternal.
When/if I get a new desktop I might have to deal with it but for now it's out of here.

No problem Craig. Just stick with Mavericks until Apple brings out OS X 10.11.0 "Death Valley". Load that sucker up and all your troubles will be over! :p

Ok, back on Mavericks. Didn't take too long.
Might wait til 10.20.17 "Sahara Desert After the Asteroid Hit" as long as Flash works :p
