Re: Removing LEDs for dark-use Pi

. Seems a waste of power to paint over the LED's, I'd rather turn them off. I use this in config.txt for the Pi4 - it seems to work, but there is probably a better way. # Disable the PWR LED dtparam=pwr_led_trigger=none dtparam=pwr_led_activelow=off # Disable the Activity LED dtparam=act_led_trigger...
