I've got the home LED set to be in use...but when does it actually operate?

I had three friend request notifications today and thought these would illuminate it but they didn't?

Cheers

yep as Robin5on says it only flashes briefly. you gotta be quick! Everytime a friend comes online it flashes and miiverse updates e.g. replies to posts etc... I dont find it very user friendly though, i'd much prefer a little notification pop up on the screen so I dont have to break my gaming.

I swear mine didn't do anything? Switched the console on from the gamepad...went into Miiverse and saw friend request notifications?

I dont think it will flash if you're on the home menu, the miiverse icon or friends icon will pulsate to notify you. The LED will only flash if you are in the middle of a game i think.

...it just worked when a friend came online. Yes...very brief indeed, just two quick flashes then it goes off! I think I'd prefer if it stayed on just pulsating slightly.

Mine briefly flashes twice when a friend comes online, like what has been said.
Im not sure if it flashes with notifications.

I would like an option for it to keep flashing until i see what the notif is.

It flashes with notifications as well! I've had it flash when someone replies to a post I've made!
