    When I use the 3DS XL in a dark or dim room, the blue power LED is really annoying. It is way too bright.

    Right now, I put a tiny scrap of black electrical tape over it.

    Is there a setting somewhere to turn it off and save a few milliamps?

    The DSI XL bothers me, too. Why couldn't they put it somewhere not visible while looking at the screen? One generally does not need a power indicator light while looking at the screen anyway....

    Whoops, didn't see the do not ask questions here at the top. Doh! Sorry.

    It really doesn't bother anyone else? Damn, that thing is blinding in a dark room. Oh, well.

    Maybe a little piece of electrical tape?
