Anyone know of a standard for power indications on equipment?

Specifically, I'm looking for any international standards that discuss
LED color, state, etc. for when a device is:

1) Connected to mains and ON

2) Connected to mains and OFF

3) Connected to mains and POWER SAVING

If there are standard iconography for these things, I'd like to know
about the references as well...

IEEE 1621: Standard for User Interface Elements in Power Control of
Electronic Devices Employed in Office/Consumer Environments
The purpose of IEEE 1621 is to accomplish a similarity of experience of
power controls across all electronic devices so that users will find them
easier to use and be more likely to use power management features that save
energy.
