I have noticed this, but I haven't given it a second thought. I think I may
found a commonality; the applets that has an immediate effect when clicked
lights up on hover, while those that display a menu, slider, etc, does not.
This is not true for all applets, however. The System Monitor applet, for
instance, does not work this way, though a single click will open the System

If it isn't designed that way, I think maybe it should; it makes sense to
about clicks that has an immediate action. That way, the menuline, volum
control, power manager and FUSA should not light up, since they'll only
sliders or menus. Launchers, window switchers, show desktop, etc should.
Following this philosophy, I think the clock applet shouldn't light up,
since it
doesn't really perform any operations, only displays the calendar. The
monitor applet, however, should light up.

My two cents;
