Are there any issues aside from the activity light blinking? Unless the light is on constantly, this is not a problem.

Windows will use idle time to index the contents of your drive and also defrag in the background. Not to mention other running processes will also require reading and writing to the drive even when you're not actively using the computer. Completely normal.
