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. I read messages from the public lists.
