Looks like it may take a bit of configuring the way you want but comes as a standalone if you prefer that and has the indicator in the task manager.

This looks good as well but even more convoluted to setup haha. I haven't tried this one so it may not be too bad. DiskLED - A Flexible Hard Disk and General System Activity Indicator System Tray Applet | sepago

Here is website which talks about it, some comments as well that may be worth reading. A Simple, Free Hard Disk LED Simulator

Thanks, I saw a few of those things mentioned during my searches (seems to me that drivegleam has/is a dll that's been used for at least one other open source application) so your links will certainly give me a good starting point. I even came across one post/thread (unfortunately it was a discussion of an XP app that may or may not work in win7) that referenced the function of sending the signal to one of the keyboard leds... that would be uber kool!!!!! ;)

Anywise, please keep the suggestions coming if there are any more out there. As I said, I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd benefit from finding something to fit the bill.
