turning off lights - Macromedia Director 3D

What's the 3D Lingo for turning off a light? I know there is 'deleteLight' but I don't want to remove it completely. I want the user to be able to darken a room by turning off lights (liek clicking on a lamp). On the topic of lights, how does the color property work? Would a black color light be dark or off? Is there any other Lingo for lights that would be useful? Thanks....

    You can change the color to black

    theLight = member("my3dscene").light("mylight")
    theLight.color = color( 0, 0, 0 )

    Thanks for that.

    I just found - removeFromWorld()
    This seems to be a way of hiding a 3D object. Am I undertsanding this
    right - can I use it to temporarily remove a light and then bring it
    back with addToWorld()? And I can use isInWorld() to test if it is
    there?
