Yea, the most common I have seen is grey for not running, flashing yellow on top for faulted. Then red (or green) on that for running. But what happens if they have a black background and you chose black motors, I had a screen once that had black buttons with no borders on a black screen, the operators hated it.

If you have a motor that is running its dangerous - red. and when you have a motor that is in a condition that is all good to start, it's green. I didn't make this up, unlike red traffic lights meaning go in China, which the red guard did make up... but I think they have stopped that now thankfully.
