Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi

I'm not having a huge problem, but it bothers me.
Today I noticed the indicator led in my power button doesn't work.

I'm using an Acer 7750G laptop not entirely sure how old (funny how quick we forget and get used to such things).
Is there any software method of testing this LED?
I'm using openSUSE 13.2

A quick(ish) google search didn't amount to any useful information since the results always treat laptops not powering on.

If you are familiar with measuring procedures you can shutdown your laptop and use some wires connected to a battery cell to see if the LED lights up. You may also use a multimeter set on the Ohm-function. Proceed with care if the LED is of SMD type.

Well this will be put on the back burner then.
I don't have the time to learn about this now. (not really familiar with this stuff)

Thanks for the answer and I will revisit this if I ever get an answer!
