Night Light Alexa Skill

Hi, I wanted to program a skill for Alexa that would allow you to use its LED as a night light for an amount of time chosen by the user. Do you have any ideas to leave alexa's led on? I've tried with a wait function, but it only allows me to do it for a very few seconds.

There are existing skills which do this. All they do is play a silent mp3 with a long duration. While the mp3 is playing, the Alexa led lights will pulse. I think you're limited to 4 minutes of mp3 though.
