Speaking of flashing lights, the manual that comes with iBooks stresses
that it's very important you don't move the iBook when the hard drive is
being accessed.

Could somebody tell me what they've done with the hard drive access
light then? Or should I only work in quiet enough places to hear the
hard drive? Perhaps develop a psychic connection to the bus and 'sense'
when data is travelling over it?

It's nice that whilst in sleep mode they have that white pulsating LED
on the front though - that very slowly drains the battery...
