2021 Legion 7 16ACHG6 - Disabling the rainbow swirl

2021-06-01, 5:32 AM

Hi Lenovo,

 

This topic is similar to others posted for the 2020 7i and the 2019 Y540 / Y740:

 

I have a brand new 2021 Legion 7. Whenever iCue exits, most commonly at Windows shutdown, the built-in lighting effect is reset to a swirling rainbow pattern. This pattern then persists on subsequent boots.

 

Tested with iCue v3.38.61 and v4.11.274. Also tried installing Lenovo Keyboard Update 0016.

 

Am I right to assume this is intended behaviour?

 

If so, is it possible to provide a software or bios update which simply sets the first inbuilt lighting preset to all off, or a simple white backlit keyboard?

 

It would be kindly appreciated by all of us who purchased this machine for professional use.

Hi Scrawlpace,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

This is most often then not the intended behavior for devices with RGB lighting, since a computer does not utilize any program or drivers (except the absolute necessary/generic ones) during bootup and shutdown. 

 

Regards

 

Voithos

Voithos,

 

I have a 10 year old laptop that boots with the RGB profile that was last set after booting into Windows.  So in my case I set the keyboard RGB to blue and the subsequent boot color is blue not some crazy rainbow pattern.  So if it could be done 10 years ago then why can't Lenovo do it today?

The solution in the form of the unoffical bios for the Y540/Y740 is actually a pretty reasonable compromise.

 

I feel this would be a much more welcome solution from both gamers and professionals (an even better option would be an "off" setting in the bios).
