When I am God-Emperor #7993 - Technology that won't go dark

I understand that being able to find the power button for a monitor in the dark might be something that some people need to do occasionally. And that flashing lights on a network device let you know that it's talking to other network devices, and not taking a long nap.

But when people build technology nowadays they realy, really should take into consideration that people tend to have tech in their bedrooms. And that monitors, computers, networking switches, powerline adapters, power extenders, wifi points, and anything else that might ever plausibly be in the same room as someone trying to sleep should have a "Completely fucking dark" option.
