    I shutdown my computer last night and I saw a green light from the back of my hp computer. It wasn't blinking or making any noise so I decided to ignore it and go to sleep. This morning I woke up and the light was gone. What was it? Ithere was no power outage last night or bad weather. I turned off y computer like every normal day and I saw the green light just on, and now it's gone. Should I be worried

    Could be a light to indicate the power supply has power, which some HP's have, or a Ethernet connectivity light, or a wireless activity light, or something else. Or it could be from the inside of the computer and be a light from the motherboard that indicates power. Hard to say without more details or best yet a picture of the back of the computer with the location of the light. If the computer is working I doubt there's any reason to worry, green lights tend to be indicate good or proper operation anyways.
