None of that is necessary. The flashing green LED is not an error indicator, it is 100% normal that it flashes. It indicates reading and writing and also the sensor cleaning (shaking of the AA filter).

You're correct, it's not an error indicator but more like an activity indicator.

But the fact that it continues to blink after the power has been shut off bothers me.  It's like when you have a runaway process on the computer chewing up CPU and memory in the background slowing performance down.

The camera is still doing something when the power is off and that isn't right.  (Please don't make me start to stare at my body when it's off, I'm already considered crazy enough!)
