Status light on upper right illuminated - how to turn it off?


Somehow, the status light at the extreme upper right of the keyboard somehow became illuminated. I think it produced a symptom in Microsoft Excel 2003 running on WinXP/SP3: pressing the down-arrow key distinct from the keypad causes the worksheet to scroll. Normally, it would cause focus to shift to the next lower cell.

Any idea on how I caused this status light to become active and how I can deactivate it?

Thanks in advance,

    font-family:"Times New Roman";

    Benimur, you're right on!!

    Pressing the middle key did turn of the right hand indicator. And once
    the indicator was off, scrolling with the down-arrow in Excel worked
    "normally" as before.

    I expected pressing the middle key again would turn the indicator on
    again. But no, instead my system went into standby.

    I had sometime ago arranged to have the left key hibernate my system,
    which I love. Actually, I don't remember if I took some action to
    get that performance, or I stumbled across it. Hmmm?

    The caps-lock key on my keyboard illuminates and extinguishes the middle light.

    The right-most key seems to do nothing AFAIK on my system.

    The bottom line is: thanks for your great response. I'm going to try to
    do the same for the person who asked about creating permutations with C++

    Best wishes,

Initially, have you checked/pressed on the "Scroll Lock" key (between Print Screen & Pause). To my knowledge, on most keyboards, the three common indicator lights are: Num Lock, Caps Lock and Scroll Lock.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Samsung Plasma will not turn on. Status light is still on. When power button is pressed, the status light extinguishes but comes back on immediately. TV never turns on.


I know the problem but you need a pro. Your TV does not start because there is a board defect. There are voltages to be taken at precises places but it is too technical and to dangerous you do it yourself, high voltage. I would strongly recommand you to see a pro. Good luck,

To the right of the power button and below the Dell AccessDirect button are three lights. These have a lock synbol below them. The first one from left to right is signified by a number 9, this light is turned on when the numberical keypad is enables. The center light is signified by a letter A, it is on when the uppercase letter function (Caps Lock) is enabled. the third one, far right, signified by a down arrow, is on when the scroll lock function is enabled.

The device status lights on the far right side near the front of the laptop case. The top light is the power status light, the middle light is the Hard drive activity light, the bottom light is the status light for power management, battery, AC etc.

Somehow I have locked the keys.

Turn the key? :-) No, seriously not sure what you mean by locking the keys. Did you restart your computer? Have you tried the keyboard on another computer. Check the status of the Num-Lock, Scroll-Lock, Caps-Lock, or F-Lock. Hope this helps.
