Default AT "power" light turned on while driving

i have a 95 impreza L 1.8 AT, and while driving to work this morning, i was passing in the left lane and kinda "gunned" it to get around traffic, and noticed the transmission POWER light turned on real quick, and then turned back off. the rest of the drive to work it stayed off. is this telling me theres a problem?

That's normal. When you accelerate quickly, the TCU changes shift patterns to a more agressive shift & AWD map.

If the light stayed on all the time, then you'd have an issue.

im sorry folks. when i got to work, i looked at the owners manual real quick, and read a breif description of power mode, which really didnt explain what it was, but if it blinked i have a problem and take it to the nearest subaru dealer. after arriving to work and examining the glossary in the owners manual, i found a section on page 7-17 explaining the power mode in better description and easing my worries. thanks for the quick reply though, and sorry for a worthless post. since im new to subaru and just bought this car 5 months ago, its been a great little car. the only expense has been new power steering lines which were bad when i bough it. its a 95 impreza L 1.8 with an automatic transmission. the car has 98,000 miles on it and was very well maintained. i bought it for $2300 (they wanted $3200) from a subaru dealer in cleveland. since i have owned it, i have had some questions i posted on here, and you guys have been very helpful. thanks!
