My USB flashdrive's light stays on all the time that there's power on
the USB port (i.e. all the time the computer's turned on).  It blinks
when things are being done on the drive, but that's all.  It does this
the same on Windows and Linux.

This behaviour may depend on your particular drive, and any special
drivers or software available to control the LED in a specific way.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
