What would be the most simple way to do it that requires the least effort?
its a diffused LED but still very bright (probably driven at the full 20mA)

Buy a roll of black insulation tape, the last one I bought cost 0.25 - thats a $0.32.
The only way to make that led dimmer and spend less is not to turn the damn thing on

I use fingernail polish. Get the cheapest you can find, like at the dollar store. Pearl white or silver works well and looks nice, tho you could use other colors. It often takes more than one coat.

Electrical tape. Failing that open the monitor, and insert a 1M resistor in series with the LED.
