I'm new to DD-WRT and sorry if this is a dumb question.

Recently I just upgraded my home network with ASUS RT-N16 and I found the flashing blue LEDs are really annoying during night. Is it possbile to turn them off with DD-WRT firmware?

Play with the gpio command and figure out which ones control the LED's you want off. Disable does not mean the LED will be off so try both states!

gpio <poll | enable | disable> <pin>

On the RT-N16, pin 1 controls the power led and pin 7 controls the wireless led. The rest of the leds don't seem to be controllable except by the switch.

BEWARE... Pin 6 is the "restore" button. If you disable pin 6 and re-enable it, the nvram will be cleared and you'll lose your settings if you don't have a backup. Pin 8 is the red WPS/SES button.
