Disable button lights?

Hello,

 

The button lights on my Y560 are pretty slick looking, but they can get distracting at night time if you are trying to watch a movie or something. Is there a way to disable all the lights? I'm tempted to stick a piece of electrical tape over the ideapad logo in the bottom corner. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Disable button lights?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you can shut off that Ideapad light in the corner inside the BIOS!

 

As for the buttons, they are instant-on, so tape might unfortunately be the solution for that one Smiley Frustrated

Re: Disable button lights?

Sorry, syntax misinterpretation:

 

The Ideapad light on the corner of your laptop. There is a setting within the BIOS to disable it I think.

 

That's what I meant Smiley Happy

There isn't crap for settings in the bios, even less then in my hp laptop. Bad thing about laptops or the ones I've owned the bois has no really settings other than basic.

I found no such option in the BIOS for my Y560p Smiley Sad
