Switch off Power and Activity led on PI

Hello there

don’t know if this was already posted earlier but…
i wanted to permanently swtich off the annoying bright leds on the raspberry as they catch my eye each and every time. I’m currently using the PI 4 with Volumio 3 running on it.

Start your SSH client (ie: Putty, OpenSSH) and login. No need for root login
Open the editor by executing this command to start editting userconfig.txt. Note: it will preserve its content when updating Volumio.

nano /boot/userconfig.txt

To disable the active led (green), add
dtparam=act_led_trigger=none
dtparam=act_led_activelow=off

To disable the power led (red), add
dtparam=pwr_led_trigger=none
dtparam=pwr_led_activelow=off

enjoy…

@CaptainSlow Thanks. I was just doing this with a .sh file in home/volumio and kicking it off from /etc/rc.local but your solution is probably safer.
