        Dunno. But if I could figure out how to build an RS-232 or USB relay controller I would. It would be wicked to turn on the CCT's I'm putting in my system.

          Why you ask???

          This could be used as an easy way of showing whether your system is on or not without having to extend the LED's from the MOBO... so that if you need to take out the system for repair, you just unplug the USB cable. As far as I know it won't be passing any power to light the LED if the power is off.

                    It was suposed to be for a laptop as a night light but as they said it could be used as an indicator light or as any power source you want it could turn on a relay or something as the computer turns on

                      Anyone else notice that it's missing a resistor?

                        Not necessarily, some LEDs have them built in. The LED is marked as a 5v led after all.

                              Kensington allready has a USB light for some time now. I have 2 of them for my notebook.

                              If you look they also have a USB fan to cool you off. I'll need that since my car and I are so hot.
