    Wow, I'm embarrassed now. I just returned a "defective" speaker dock to Amazon because it wouldn't charge my Xoom while it was powered on, which of course I wanted it to do while I was listening to music or whatever. Didn't realize it was charging because the light wasn't on. Oopsie! I've never seen a device with a charge indicator that wasn't lit up when the unit was charging, no matter whether unit was powered up or off.

    I like the light off. I watch movies while charging and the light drives me nuts.

    Lols. I nearly did the same thing a week ago (I'm new here) and then check the the charging status xoom itself and saw that it was charging. Took awhile for me to figure this out.

    I never thought about it that way. And when I think about it I've had notebook computers that presented me with this very problem and with NO option to turn the lights off. I'd have to move something in front of it so it wouldn't be so distracting while viewing a movie.

    Okay, now I see the light (so to speak).

    I charge mine at night and that little light is enough to keep me awake. So I'm with you - I like it off!

    Hello all,

    I thought I understood the question the OP had and the next poster explains how it works, and it was as I had come to know.

    Light is only on when xoom is powered down and charger plugged in. OP did not have a light when powered up and plugged in. To get the light he had to just power down the xoom.

    So, if it is powered on so that you can get the video app to play your selected video, and you have it plugged in, then the light should be off, right?

    xoom powered down + plugged in = light on.
    xoom powered up + plugged in = light off
    xoom powered up + plugged in + movie player= ?
    xoom powered up + plugged in + any app running= ?

    This is only valid if you did not use the light on/ light off extras when installing/ updating your kernel.

    Thanks, Chris.

    if it is plugged in light will be off regardless of what else is running on the tablet. the light will only come on when powered down.

    Unless you are running one of the kernels which has it on...
