New mail notification using the PowerMate
Authored by: Werd on Mar 22, '04 01:08:37AM

I remember a little program from years ago that would make the caps/num/scroll lock lights on the keyboard flash - even reacting to music like a mini VU meter (this was back when the three lights were still all in a row at the top of the keyboard). For those of us without PowerMates, a little script to control the on/off state of the caps lock and num lock lights could be very handy. I would love to have my num lock light flash when I have mail waiting, since I can't tell without waking the screensaver or bringing the display out of sleep. Does anyone know how to temporarily override the lights for these keys?

These commands enable "keyboard lights", which can be used, by a decent applescripter, which I am definitely not, to do those very cool things you're describing

From the developer:
"Keyboard lights no longer works. It was ADB based, and does not work for USB keyboards. It is not even present in Jon's Commands X."

That's too bad, since it would have been a great solution. Does anyone have any other ideas?
