Dunno about the G5 specifically but on a mouse I previously had it had an annoyingly bright LED so I took it apart and cut the LED wires :P

Maybe check the software? I know I can turn the LEDs off in my Lachesis so maybe it has something similar?

Open it up and cut the traces to the LED.

Just saying, i have the mouse and it doesnt bother me at night and my computer is on 24/7.

Its not like a razer mouse where the whole mouse lights up bright.

Not sure if its that simple, as its 3 position indicator which lets you know which dpi setting you are on.

I'm not sure why you would want to, but if I did, I'd just desolder them.
