Welcome! I'm glad you're enjoying the sound of your system.
The most likely reason the green signal light on the PackLite does not come on when you are playing your ipod at low levels is that the PackLite sees just the bass part of the signal, while the T1 light looks at all the frequencies. So the T1 may see a higher level than the PackLite.
That will depend on program content - you may find tunes that have more bass and turn the PackLite light on more often.
Your drum and toms could be pretty compressed coming out of your kit, meaning that hitting softly or hard with the drumsticks may not make the same amount of loudness difference as it might on an acoustic drum kit
Yes that makes a lot of sense. I used the system for the first time at one of our regular pub gigs and it sounded great with no distortion happening in the low end so I think I'll stop worrying about the red light and just enjoy it! The amp whilst warm at the end of the night certainly didnt feel like it had been overworked. In about three months time I should have one of the new 2box drumit five kits which is the next generation of ddrum kits ie made by the same people who developed the ddrum for Clavia. Maybe you could look at collaberating with them to get a preset happening for the tonematch.

(maybe some drummers who have experience with electronic kits can chime in here on the best settings for use with the L1). I think you are probably just putting out a lot of bass and it is registering on the amp.
If it sounds the way you like it, you can leave it as is. Or you may want to try lowering the output of the drum kit or it's low end so you don't drive the PackLite quite so hard.
I hope that helps,
