Controlling the external LED

I'm looking for an application to customize the flashing of the LEDs on my 3125; I believe I remember seeing an application for this purpose a long time ago, but that was before I got my phone and I can't find it now. I've tried searching on Google, here, and Howardforums to no avail. Does anyone know of this application? I found out about this in a post in which the power consumption difference was described for e.g. one flash every eight seconds vs. one flash every four seconds (the numbers were likely different, but the concept is the same).

After quite of bit more searching on the internet, I found the program I was looking for, then immediately a better program which also does the same thing. The better program is Don't Forget, available at http://blog.softimage.cz/?page_id=83 . I don't have a link to the first program, and the filename ( LED_v1.exe for the curious) doesn't lend itself to internet searches well.

Brilliant! Thanks for letting us know about this app from our Czech friend. Really nice reminder app as well as a good way to control that #$@&^ green LED!! (You need to install the Beta 2 version to disable the LED.)

That leaves the even more annoying and pointless Bluetooth LED. I have to have Bluetooth enabled permanently and don't like having this bright blue light annoying me all day and keeping people awake at night if I forget to turn the phone over!

Anyone know of any way to disable the thing but keep Bluetooth running??

I used the LED_v1.exe which can be found here and it turns out that it was eating my battery way too fast, like craaaazy!

So, I decided to give the Don't Forget application a try.

Has anybody had any battery problems using the Turn Off LED ability of the program?

Because if it is "actively jamming" the LED it will be constantly using the CPU and therefore,

shortening the battery life.

I've found the opposite - my battery life has definitely improved since I installed it!

Are you sure it's actively jamming like that - I'd check with the author. He's good at responding to emails.

Well, I didn't say that I was sure it works that way. I just implied that if this is the case, then the application must be a battery-eater.

Anyway, I installed it this morning and my battery is still in normal levels, so I am very very pleased!!!!

You are right about checking with the author, just out of curiosity.

Thank you very much for the reply! :)
