I turn the power led off by adding this to /etc/crontab

Code: Select all

@reboot root echo 0 > /sys/class/leds/led1/brightness
works on the Pi3 and the Pi4.
There must be a better way .....

No known way of turning off the Pi 4 Ethernet socket LEDs. The LEDs are wired to the Broadcom Ethernet PHY and there is no public documentation on it AFAIK. The config.txt options to turn off the LED is only for the 3B+ and the utility is for the older Pi boards.
