Turn off Blue LED?

Is there a way to turn off the Blue LED entirely? I can turn off the LEDs on the Pi itself, but my search has come up empty trying to turn off the light on the Shake board.



$ echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/led0/brightness
$ echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/led1/brightness

Hello Chris, and welcome to our community!

Regarding your query, it is not possible to communicate with the blue Shake board in order to shut down the blue led.

If it creates a problem, maybe you can cover the top of the Shake enclosure and see if the glow of the LED doesn’t create other issues.

Thanks, Stormchaser. Too bad though, it would be nice if there was a toggle for it. I’ll continue covering it up manually. Not as ideal from an air flow perspective.


Yes, that will be the only thing to keep an eye on, and see if the Shake will not get too hot.

You’re welcome. Cheers!
