Please allow the disabling of RGB light show on start up. I'm afraid I will have to return the laptop if this is not resolved. Why create a subdued gaming laptop and then do this to your customers.

Please stop the rainbow lights on the legion 7. I want to be able to turn it off and keep it off even after I shut it down and boot again.

The inability to to remove the rainbow lighting on start up and during screen lock make it useless as a combined work place and gaming machine - for which it is marketed and designed. 

 

This combined with the battery drain caused by icue amount to major fault. These units should not have been shipped with these issues unresolved. Users shouldn't have to uninstall stock software just to get normal battery life.

 

If these were not reason enough for me to consider returning, it turns out my unit also has a high-pitched ringing/ coil whine coming from the right fan which is audible even at idle but gets worse with fan speed.

 

hopes for this being a great dual purpose machine have rapidly dissipated.

How is this still an issue on Legion 7i? Lenovo really need to fix the softwares, specifically the RGB rainbow at start up and iCUE battery drain issue. These two things are absolutely ruining what is a good laptop.

Hi again,

 

I successfully downgraded the firmware by downloading and installing an older version found through this here forum thread:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Gaming-Laptops/Vantage-installed-the-wrong-driver-for-Y740-17inch-keyboard/m-p/4464481

 

Spiral is gone and the backlight defaults to standard blue, which I still find too bright without iCue -tuning, i.e. on Linux. Be careful not to let Vantage update it! Better still, dish the Vantage along with all the useless Lenovo bloatware - clean install of W10 from Microsoft source is what I did after this.

 

This is still a workaround, though, and Lenovo should resolve the issue without forcing the end users to hack this s**te. Not holding my breath.

 

 

Sorry I didn't contribute this solution earlier.

 

 

Cheers,

 

-j-

 

 

Edit: weirdly, I could not paste the link whilst writing this on Brave browser - it cut all the text below as well.

Thanks but looks like we are waiting for Lenovo to jump in on this to see what they can do for current drivers, if the option was present in the past we want an answer as to why it can't be re-added.
