Power light

Power buttonYes, if the computer is sleep or standby mode it is normal for the power light (LED) to flash or blink. This lets you know the computer is still on, it's just in a power saving mode. If your computer is in this mode press any key on the keyboard or press a button on a mouse button to get out of the power savings mode.
