PLaybook tablet charge light indicator

Hi all,


I am not sure if this is an issue with my tablet so need a confirmation - does the charge LED indicator on show red/green/yellow light when it is put on charge while it is turned off? Or should also show the light when it is put on charge even if the tablet is turned on/standby mode?

Currently, my LED light only shows a light (of any colour) when my tablet is off. As soon as I turn it on (while charging), the LED light goes away. The charge icon on the top right corner of ths screen indicates charging or not.

Can someone plese confirm if this is the correct behavior?

Yep, that is correct.. LED blinks when charging and off.

Not when on.
