    Hi,

    That's probably your hard drive activity light, and on a new machine it will
    remain fairly active while the system "burns in". Afterwards, it'll remain
    active when the machine is in use, when scheduled maintenance and scans are
    being done, and at other odd times but to a much lesser degree.
