I was annoyed by the fingerprint reader light while I was watching movies in the dark and I wanted to play with Fusion 360 so I did this :
Framework hide expansion v3.stl (220.6 KB)
I probably could have fix with software but I rather have my own expansion card haha
Problably one of the most useless expansion card but I like it a lot
Don’t close your laptop while having this expansion card
So this is just a movie enhancer, and you like or want the light in the day ??
3.07+ let’s you turn brightness for the power button down to low. Not quite off, but I notice it doesn’t bug me as much.
Note, the fingerprint light is controllable in EC I believe, you can use the EC Tool created by the “EC Guy” too edit it! Still cool tho!
No I wanna watch the movie in the night, in the dark and without a glowing light next to the screen this expansion card cover that light
Yes I got the function idea but I was wondering if you want the light at other times
Oh yeah definitely, I just use this card for movies. The rest of the time I want access to fingerprint reader and light
Ok so you want the light I was thinking you could edge the button with red nail varnish etc.
For what it’s worth, you can turn the light off with ectool by setting the color to blue (a color it doesn’t have):
# ectool led power blue
Your solution is more creative, though
