You can take the power from power or hdd leds but these lines are current limited so the led wouldn't be that bright. You could use http://www.bit-tech.net/article/58/ or http://www.metku.net/index.html?sect=vi ... ransistori to get more power for the activity leds but they are bit more difficult to do.

Those AA batteries should last quite long with single led... week or two I would believe but I'm not sure.
