        I knew that while running some applications such as GMPlay
that the LED would dim but I was never sure why. That's a good thing
to know. You're right though that it's not a GURU for KS 2+, but a
software failure. I tend to describe any error which brings up the
red box error as a GURU though. It gives you little option other
than pressing the mouse button and rebooting.
