Y740 Fn + Space bar issue

2019-08-18, 2:00 AM

After openining up iCUE and updating it, I restarted my computer and no longer can use the Fn + Spacebar to rotate through the different presets for the backlit keyboard. I can manually choose which ones I want through iCUE and they all work but do not know how to get those presets back to the Fn + Spacebar hot key. Any suggestions?

Hi Barsin!


Welcome to the Community Forums!


Apologies for the delayed response. Are you still having issues changing the pre-sets of the keyboard backlight? 


Uninstall/Reinstall the iCue app and the Lenovo Vantage app. On the Lenovo Vantage app, run a system update for firmware and BIOS updates on your computer.


Let us know if you still need additional assistance from us.

Same problem here, all drivers updated including BIOS.

Weird fact that it does work until I log on, after that doesn't work anymore..

You have to quit iCUE to use FN-Spacebar now, that's the reason FN-Spacebar still works before login as iCUE starts up and disables it.  iCUE on the 740 doesn't support its own hotkeys either as it does on other laptops and platforms, which is a pain.
