Get it to actually turn it on properly, i would imagine.
it times out trying to send the setup bytes, or something like this.

I actually cared about this for 10 or 20 minutes, and looked at the
openfirmware code, and it looked like it was remarkably simple to turn
the led on and off, so i wouldn't imagine fixing it is a large job.

"Last time I went skiing, I had to get up at 5:00 in the morning.
I knew I couldn't do that, so I slept with my skis on.  My ride
came at 5:30 in the morning, couldn't wake me up so he carried
me out of the house, put my skis on the roof rack of the car,
and drove to the mountain.  Seventeen miles later, I woke up out
of this incredibly bizarre dream that I was skydiving
horizontally.  I'm sure this has happened to you.
