iMac G3 Nightstand [LED indicator too bright]

I use my iMac G3 on a small desk right near my bed for games, podcasts, live audio streams and some beautiful screensavers. It is running OS X 10.2.8. I am very annoyed at the extremely bright white LED power button, specifically when the iMac goes to sleep. Was there ever a program, hack, hardware tweak or any kind of solution to this problem, beyond the obvious - placing something in front of the damn button?
Thanks

Opaque sticky backed electrical tape cut to the size of the button? Idea came from links to this site selling cut size light block-outs for LED buttons, etc. Actually, their stickers seem to be translucent, so you can still tell if a device is on or off (don't know if these would be effective or not).

I was hoping for a solution without the need to dismantle the machine, since the case around the CRT is so old it begins to crack as soon as you start moving it even a little.
