triotec,

Check what your LED triggers look like
ls -l /sys/class/leds/*

and for example, to check individual trigger. See if any of the trigger was turned on

cat /sys/class/leds/status\:green\:health/trigger

It's his USB drive's LED, not dockstar's LED. His USB drive was the RFS, it is accessed often and it will flash often.

Another reason not to use USB flash drive as RFS for long term.

Ah. David was right.

@triotec,
Try using a different USB thumb drive (such as Sandisk).
