Default 8800 / 8820 Trackball customization?

Please Login to Remove!

I am well aware that it is impossible to change the color of the trackball on my 8820, as there is only a white LED. I would like to know, however, if there is a way to either alter the brightness of it, or have it not light up via some small application or other hack I haven't been able to find. Using my BB in a dark room with my thumb passing back and forth over the blaring white trackball is kind of annoying.

I was hoping for a more "refined" solution...

So seriously though, nobody knows of any way to control the lighting of an 8800 series trackball?
