  • Why is there a difference?  Both machines are supposed to be identical.

  • You probably have your power management set up in your IDT settings. If you go to control panel and then go to sound and hardware, there should be your IDT control panel in that window. Under advanced power management is enabled the red LED won’t light up. If you de-select that option it should light up again.
