What is useKEYBD.led 3.0?

This Control Panel lets you repurpose the LED indicator lights on an Apple Extended Keyboard to work as activity indicators.

The utility detects any activity from a floppy drive, a SCSI unit (harddisk, CD-ROM drive, etc...), a modem, a printer, an AppleTalk net or a strike on the keyboard and causes the keyboard led to flash according to this activity.

By default the num lock led flashes when the floppy disk spins, the caps lock led flashes when you strike any key of the keyboard, when a modem or AppleTalk exchange data, when the printer print something and the scroll lock led flashes when some SCSI (HD, scanner, CD-ROM drive...) activity is detected.  This configuration can be customized.  The six activities that can be detected are floppy disk, modem, printer, AppleTalk, keyboard, and SCSI.  You can select more than one led for any activity and a led can be associated to many activities.

Compatibility notes

useKEYBD.led works only with an extended keyboard. Normally, an extended keyboard has LEDs labelled "num lock," "caps lock," and "scroll lock."

This utility should only be used with Motorola 68K-series processors.  If your Macintosh has a PowerPC processor, this utility may cause conflicts and not work properly and you should use a utility called “ledPPC” instead.
