Thanks for the suggestion, but yeah, I'm really looking for something a lot smaller. If I wanted something similar to that, I could just run windows resource monitor with the window shrunk down to almost just the disk IO "light" (as per the image below), but I figured there's probably something out there designed specifically to mimic the HDD LED light.

I dunno.... maybe it's just me, but I've always used the HDD LED as a quick reference when / if a PC seems to have stopped responding to inputs.... if I see it chunking I at least know it's doing something. :)

edit:

This is the kind of thing I'm trying to avoid.... Free HDD LED - CNET Download.com Looks perfect, but it's one of those annoying little apps (from a reasonably trusted source) that attempts to install third party apps (how they make their money) without a clear direction as to how to install without the third party programs.
