Can you give the same files for RED color? Your files only give blue color. Thanks.

Hi.

Is it possible to receive similar file for Legion 5 pro? We also can't disable RGB keyboard backlight.

On my 2021 Legion 7, I discovered a workaround which allowed me to customize the RGB lights using iCue so that it persists between boot/shutdown.

 

I was able to completely disable the exterior lights and set the keyboard to a solid white. No more rainbow swirl.

 

Not sure if it works on the Y540/Y740, but maybe worth a try:

Unfortunately, on my Legion 7 81YT, that iCue trick didn't work. I still have to Fn+Space (4 times) to keep a single color or to Fn+DnArrow for turn it off at each boot.

Super frustrating this.


Y740 17 inch here.

 

When I initially got my machine, it defaulted to white as the default keyboard color. Which honestly is how I think it should default if they aren't going to give the users the choice to configure it themselves without third party software that doesn't start until after you boot into windows.


After a bios update, it started to spew rainbows everywhere on boot. iCue was a work around, but as others have said, booting the laptop up in a professional environment and having it put on a light show is not a good look. I had been resorting to the fn key / turn off lighting, until iCue booted up. Unfortunately, iCue doesn't always detect my keyboard the first time, and I have to restart it and honestly I just don't like having the extra software installed for something that initially Lenovo got right on this machine.

 

I appreciate the blue light files, that is a huge improvement over the rainbow light show and I will probably uninstall iCue now. But I really wish Lenovo would offer the files that shipped with my device. White as the default light was SO much better. Would love to be able to go back to that.
