Is there a way to get the power light on a HAF XB to turn off while hibernating?

I just switched from an NZXT Guardian 921 RB to a Cooler Master HAF XB and couldn't be happier with it. It's roomy, doesn't have annoying lights and cabling is easy.

However back on my old case whenever I hibernated all lights went off. Which I liked. With the HAF XB when I hibernate the power switch red light remains blinking, which is annoying as the computer is in my bedroom.

The manual doesn't show any information regarding it and as it's not a very popular case I haven't been able to find a lot of info about it either.

If anyone knows how to deal with this I'll greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Are you sure you're hibernating instead of just putting it in sleep mode (including hybrid sleep)? Also, does the light remaing blinking if you shut down instead of hibernating? The case and motherboard have no way of discerning between when you use "Hibernate" and when you use "Turn Off" or "Shut Down" in the OS - the difference is that for hibernating, the OS stores the current contents of RAM to disk, then reloads that when booting instead of going through the normal sequence of launching services, starting drivers, etc.

If that isn't the problem, maybe you could just put a small piece of tape over the light.

Erm... doesn't have annoying lights? ;P

Also, why not just unplug the power switch light from the motherboard?

Of course. :) 

Don't worry, we all have those. My most recent was spending several hours trying to figure out why my speakers weren't working, only to have a friend walk in and observe that I had yet to turn them on.
