Keyboard LED applet?

Anyone know of a simple keyboard LED panel applet to show caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock?

Re: Keyboard LED applet?

Thanks!
Seems OK but only updates status after I type something. For example, if I just hit Caps Lock, it doesn't change, but if I hit Caps Lock then type something (like a URL) it changes. On my keyboard the ScrLk key doesn't seem to change status.
It's a little plain, but I guess it's OK.

How about a hard drive activity LED? Not temperature, just a blinky light when the HD is active. I have a SSD coming and I won't be able to hear the activity and the case is under a desk.

PS - That plugin you mention doesn't show up in this list: https://goodies.xfce.org/projects/panel-plugins/start

Maybe this one? Haven't used it, don't know if it's what you need:

Or this one?

Last thing I found by searching for linux hard drive activity indicator (looks nice, but probably more than you need unless you are in need of visual stimulation wink ) :

Thanks MDM!
I had seen those and they are more than what I need in the task tray. I just one a simple HDD LED type indicator. I use conky for more detailed meters.
Any other suggestions?
