    Hi and welcome to the forum. Yes that is absolutely normal. Orange means that is charging and white that is on stand by mode.

    I thought I read one time that if you send the Acer the wrong amount of power it would flash white like that. I could be mistaken though.

    If you read that, it was written by an idiot.

    How would you possibly "send the acer the wrong amount of power"?

    Orange means charging.
    White means trying to access the net for checking mail, messages, facebook, market updates, etc.

    Perfectly normal/
