    Monitor indicator light keeps always on


    My cpu and monitor gets power from UPS. As UPS is kept always on, so whenever I shut down my PC, the monitor also shuts but indicator light of monitor keeps on because monitor is getting power from UPS which is always on. My question is that is there any harm if monitor indicator keeps on or I should give power to monitor from other switch.
    Edit- sorry, the indicator light turns to yellow from Blue when I shut down PC then stays in yellow position.

    As long as the monitor is plugged into a power source the amber light will be lit when the monitor is off and when turned on will turn blue. This is normal and there is no harm in this. If it bugs you, unplug the monitor power plug.

    One of my monitors have an option to show the light, check if yours has it in it's menu.

    Usually the monitor light is also the on/off switch for the monitor but others might have it elsewhere so once shut down turn it off manually rather than keeping those caps warm all night

I got a new keyboard. It does not have a light that shows caps lock on or off. And a desktop indicator no longer shows caps lock as being turned on or off. How can I make Windows indicate the caps lock setting? Thank you for your help.
