    The Finder app stays on continuously. It cannot be quit, because the Finder is always active. You need to quit a Finder application from the dock by right-clicking the icon and selecting "quit". This might be work and in the result you can able to fix this problem. Hence use this technique and then see what happen on your system. It works without any problem on this Mac system. Then try this and see the performance of the application.

    The information you received about the light under Finder was accurate. It possible that it makes some problem such as automatically restarts and you can't stop that. Finder is always open by design and so it always has a blue light. It also displays the files on your desktop and does a number of other things. Finder can't be closed. Hence I must tell you that this is not an major issue. It happen number of times without facing any problem.

    The Dock is the bar of icons that sits at the bottom or side of your screen. It provides easy access to some of the Apple applications on your Mac. You need to go to your home and then open the library. After that you need to find the com.apple.dock.db, com.apple.dock.plist, and com.apple.finder.plist files on this system. Then you need to move founded file to the desktop, restart your Mac. I hope this will be work and it will be solve your problem.

    The blue lights indicate whether an application is running or not. You need to find out that the finder application installed on this system has been properly work or not. It might be help to you for solving the problem. This is the best way that I can think to remove such kind of problem onto this application.
