My DW has the same issues with any lights that are on at night when she goes to sleep. The Jensen TV in the bed room has a small blue light that is on when she goes to sleep. Will she made a black felt cover for the TV that slides over it, blocking the light.

In the Kitchen I have to cover the Microwave LED clock on the display before we go to bed; this light will keep her awake. We put a vent cushion in the bathroom and kitchen vent fans. The bathroom skylight has a cover over the opening.

She likes it really really dark for sleeping.

Hey, it worked for Mick Jagger LOL! Seriously, all these little LEDs make me crazy in my new rig! Turning the TV antenna off has become part of our nightly closing-up routine. I know they serve an important function, but they are very annoying!

Blue light disrupts sleep even with eyes closed. So does red light but not as much.

Not trying to be argumentative just interested to know how, if the eyes can't see the light, how does the light disrupt sleep?

I had the same problem with a LCD TV in my room. It drove me crazy. My solution was a couple strips of black electrical tape. A couple years ago I gave the TV to my nephew. He couldn't find the power button because it didn't light up and called me from Houston. I laughed and said try feeling for the electrical tape. He called me later and said that dang blue light keeps me awake now I have to go buy some black electrical tape.

Electrical tape has worked great for me. It will keep the light out and in 2 seconds it can be taken off so you are back to original. Cutting wires and tracing power is not necessary in my humble opinion. I have a Progressive Industries EMS mounted on my bedroom wall and next time I go camping the black electrical tape is covering up those blinking red lights!!

My first reaction would be a thumb tack and a sock.

Then I'd dismantle the thing and put red LEDs inline with some resistors to have a dimmer and softer light. But not everyone can do that, so snipping the LEDs may be an option.

We have a heated mattress, and I swear I can read a newspaper by the excess light the control box puts out. I drop a sock over that, too.

Blue light
