Default Can I disable Flashing Mutes when a Solo is on?

I'm controlling Pro-Tools LE 7.1 using a hardware control surface using the MotorMix protocol over MIDI.
When I hit SOLO on any channel (be it from the control surface or on the computer), the MUTE lights of all other channels on the control surface flash. This is a sensible warning because you normally won't hear those other tracks and might not be aware that a track somewhere is solo'd.
Is there a way to disable this flashing?

(A confident and authoritative "No" answer would help me because at least I then could stop wasting my time looking for a solution!)

The reason I don't want the mute lights to flash is that I want to automate mutes for external analog signal paths; I have wired relays across the lights of my control surface. I don't want the relays clicking away all the time there is a solo...


I'm a total newbie here. If the correct answer to this question is RTFM, please say *which* manual.
And if I should include more information, what sort of thing will help. The computer is a PC running Windows XP, and the MIDI interface is a MidiSport 8x8s but I don't think this should affect the answer.
