    oh ok,light problem is still there but not a big issue for me. Now it blink for 4-5 seconds before it was normal like 1-2 seconds.i also tried to install windows 7.but same problem there. Now re-installed Windows 8. Anyway i'll let you know if any problem occur.main fear is battery draining,well let's see what happen

    Ok sorry for late reply,battery life seems ok now.i think probem was in Intel Chipset drivers.whenever i install Intel chipset driver or Intel rapid storage technology driver,my battery life become low.My question is,is it ok if i use windows 8 default Standard AHCI Controller instead of Intel Chipset & rapid storage technology driver ?
    light problem is still there,but minor problem.now it blinks for 4-5 seconds instead of normal 1-2 seconds as before in sleep mode !!
