Setting to turn off PWR LED


#1

It would be nice to have a setting in the web interface where we could poweroff the PWR LED on the PI

https://www.jeffgeerling.com/blogs/jeff-geerling/controlling-pwr-act-leds-raspberry-pi shows how this can be done in software.

(while we’re at it, we could off to disable HDMI output, which has some minor energy saving property)

Someone is welcome to write up a tutorial which we can link to on the website and/or the docs. Optimising for low power isn’t a goal for this project so I won’t be spending time implementing this myself.

Hi, my usecase was not power oriented, but more esthetics oriented since the powerled is pretty bright in my living room. But hey, I fully understand that this is not a priority.
