I hope you are all barraging the official Lenovo support with tickets and referencing this thread.  There is no way they will read this thread on their own.

 

Incidentally, the 5i remembers the keyboard color when rebooting. So they know how to do it.

Completely agreed that they need to revert this change. When I bought the computer, it booted with solid color......

Totally agree, Please Lenovo, let us be proud of the otherwise beautiful machine you have made.

 

Just imagine, all these customers taking their laptops to the workplace, opening them up in meetings, board rooms, presentations! think of the free advertising you will get when we can finally take our laptops to work.

 

I'm actually still taking my T410s from 2011 to work, as I find it more appropriate. Although I doubt its inspiring anyone to buy a Lenovo. 

 

As a side note, this is the longest and most populated thread I have come across on the Lenovo forum, seems clear your customers want this change.

 

Help us help you! :)

+1

 

Surely this is possible with a bios update

 

My 10 year old daughter really likes it though :)

I sure hope Lenovo does something about it this time.. I love the RGB LEDs on this device, but I surely didn't ask for that rainbow spiraling effect on bootup.

 

Please Lenovo - FIX THIS.

YES, PLEASE!!! I just received a brand spanking new Legion 7i that I was so excited about but am ready to send it back without even using it yet. These lights are positively crazy making. I had thought I read somewhere that this could be turned off, but I cannot now find how to do so. Sure, I can scroll through the options every time I start up, but why should I have to?! This should be a very basic feature and I'm crossing my fingers that Lenovo will provide me (us) with a solution. Good grief.

It's honestly disgraceful that they put so much time and effort into the hardware, and even the total number of performance related BIOS options, but nothing that simply changes the behavior of the onboard LEDs. It boggles the mind and makes Lenovo seem incompetent that they can't just write a tiny bit of code that makes the keyboard remember its previous lighting state upon boot. They've shown it's possible on previous models, but maybe they just fired their last low level programmer, and now they can't figure out how to turn off an LED device. 

 

The worst part of this whole thing is that I like the machine a lot. It's just such a weird thorn in my side that I can't open my computer at night without being blasted halfway across the room by a full power gamma ray burst shooting out of my laptop from every conceivable direction. It's like if I bought a new car, and every time I turned it on, the stereo would blast Darude Sandstorm at full volume unless I quickly punched in a deactivation sequence on a keypad unless I ripped the stereo out entirely.

 

And whoever's idea it was to make spiral rainbow vomit the default needs to be demoted immediately. Come on Lenovo, you can do better than this. I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed. Actually, no, I'm also mad.
