    Just curious - i found a program - KBlights.zip - its got a simple program for windows 98/me that allows you to make your numlock, capslock, and scrolllock flash - in cool dance.

    i just got the Saitek Eclipse blue led backlight keyboard - and would LOVE to have the keyboard's led's flash.

    only one issue - its a USB keyboard and i'm running windows XP

    anyone know of a simple way to program it to do that or something? thanks guys!

    I doubt you can make the backlight leds blink on command, unless you can turn it on/off thru some other program that came with it?

    that would be badass. Like if the system goes into standby or something, you could have the keyboard LEDs blink across the keyboard or something. Useless, but :coold:

    I need to get one of those Saitek eclipse keyboards. It's on my birthday wish list :x:

    The hardware is probably setup to just turn the lights on when power is applied. It probably doesn't have the ability to control individual backlights, which means no program can.
