    piCore player - disabling Raspberry LEDs

    I have switched my Rpi 3B+ to piCore 6.10 recently. I have again tried to disable network, power and status LEDs - in the bedroom. I have added these lines to config.txt. It doesn't work. I have the impression that during boot, the LEDs are off for an instance but then this gets overwritten by something else. It's obvious that my linux knowledge is somewhat limited....

    #Custom Configuration Area, for config settings that are not managed by pCP.
    #pCP will retain these settings during insitu-update
    #---Begin-Custom-(Do not alter Begin or End Tags)-----
    # Turn OFF Network LEDs
    How can I get this to work?

    I run a shell script at startup which, amongst a bunch of other stuff, includes this line at the end:
    #turn off power LED
    echo 0 | sudo tee /sys/class/leds/led1/brightness &
    This turns off the power light after everything else successfully started up.
