    I have searched the forums and scoured my prefs on my 650 and cannot seem to find a way to have my Treo's LED blink when I have an alert (voice or text message). I want to be able to see if I have an alert without having to walk over and pick it up from where I charge it or where I happen to set it down. I have read about Butler, but am hoping the Treo can do it on its own.

    Butler lets you do it for voicemail, not sure about other alerts

    An app called Butler. LedOff may do this too but I do not know for sure. Search for it.

    I have ledoff and have it set to show the led for alerts... but it doesn't do anything when there is an alert.

    If I'm repeating what someone has already said look at how long the thread is and ask yourself if you really expect me to read the whole thing.

    Then use Butler...check all the boxes on the Attention Grabber screen and you'll be covered.

    LedOFF - Free
    Butler - $12

    Not worth it for me.

    Butler does much more than the LED attention grabber. It has highly been touted as th best utility app written for the Treo, and many consider it required software. I believe that Butler deserves a try from each and every Treo user, at least for the trial period. What do you have to lose?

    "LEDOff is an application that does only one thing: it turns off the LED. No more blinking LED, it's off and it remains off" -- www.treoware.com

    "If you don't like the pulsing LED of your Treo600 or Treo650, LEDOff is for you: enable LEDOff, and it will disable the LED! Really, don't ask me why, I do LOVE my pulsing LED, but some users have requested such a stand-alone application. Well...

    User have requested the possiblity to remove the LED sometimes, and to keep it some other times, for example to see if the battery is fully charged. If you want to do so, you can check the events you want to keep, and uncheck the others." -- http://palmgear.com/index.cfm?fuseac...e&prodID=67607

    What is your point?

    Was just quoting the app description from a couple of different places. Bottom line is that LEDOff doesn't do what you are asking for, but Butler does.

    uhh, yes it does. There are check boxes for alert: voicemail, Mail, Datebook, SMS, Generic

    It just doesn't seem to work.

    Can you re-describe exactly what functionality you're looking for? Perhaps I missed something...

    Do you want the LED to be off (no blinking) unless you receive a voice or text message? If so LEDoff should work but I don't happen to use it...

    Hmmm. I have my LED Off set so that the LED is normally off but it flashes rapidly when I have an alert. Not sure why it doesn't work for others...

    Ledoff has settings for this, but they do not seem to work on many devices, especially after the latest firmware upgrades. I have a VZW 650 with the latest firware and it does not work. Butler does, but at a cost. I believe the original post was looking for a freeware app that would turn off the led but turn it back on for alerts.
