How do I disable it?! It's driving me crazy! My eyes hurt so much because of that constantly blinking blue light! Can't it just stay blue?!!

Right, but if we have the controller plugged in through USB, then we're not using it for Bluetooth. It would be nice if the light could be made solid when plugged in through USB (or turned off is good too, but it does look nice.) Just as long as it is not distracting and blinking like that.

That is the only thing I do not like about this controller, the constantly. blinking. light. Once it's connected, it should just be a solid colour.

When the blue light is blinking, it shows that Bluetooth is not connection and the controller is waiting for pairing.

I understand that the blinking light indicates that the Controller is waiting to be paired by Bluetooth.

However, I wonder if we can have the option of disabling Bluetooth-listening when the controller is connected through USB cable to a PC. In that case the LED lights could be turned off only when the controller is in USB Joystick mode / X360 mode.

When you use the controller with the USB cable you cannot connect to a Bluetooth source at the same time. So that would be an interesting possibility to solve this problem, because the blinking light is indeed annoying.

Another possibility would be to make the LED light be solid and constant (without flashing), just like when it pairs with a Bluetooth source.

I really hope this can be implemented in a future firmware.
