Noticed my Swift PG278Q light on the bottom right corner is always red sitting at the desktop screen with no games running in the background and only web browsing.

Did you set monitor technology to fixed refresh in the global setting? (then select g-sync for specific game you want)

For my Global 3D settings, under Monitor Technology, I have it set to G-Sync. So what you're saying is to set it to the option "Fixed Refresh" then under Program Settings, find select games and set their Monitor Technology to G-Sync instead? Then it should fix the G-sync is always running while sitting at desktop with no games running in the background?

Fixed it, I don't know how I did it but, apparently I just enabled G sync, and made sure all the programs in program settings used global settings and then red light at the bottom right corner changed to white again. Thanks for the help guys!
