Unfortunately, the power button does not change color and it does stay in solid blue.

It's not selectable in Command Center? on the R4 you could select it and choose a new color from the color wheel, but I don't have any experience on the new Command Center...though it seems odd that they would remove that option.
I by no means know what I am doing with the command center on my 15R4, but I was able to change the color on the power button. So, it is possible.
You can change it!
I have a 17 R5. click on the number eight label that is pointing to the head, you will then be able to change the colour.
Clicking on the head itself will not select it.
Can you not change the color of the little power button alien head? The one above the keyboard?
I have the 4 keyboard zone Alienware 17.3 inch R5, and I can change the color of all the different zones and the sides and stuff... but for the life of me I cant figure out how to change the little alien head shaped power button from its default light blue color...
How do you change it? Can this be patched into the Alienware Command Center please?
I’m sorry I did read the other comments and I’m still confused.
do you mean hit 8 on the keyboard? Or a label that says 8 in the Alienware control panel?
I’ll try again when I’m home, at least it’s good to know it can be changed!
OK, I see the 8 you guys are talking about in the Alienware Command Center, but for some reason when I click on it, it wont respond. I can click on every other zone and pick the colors I want, but not the 8 for the little alien power head, its weird.
And now for some reason the head is flashing through different rainbow colors, its super annoying, uggghh
