Yoga 910 keyboard backlit doesn't go off

Is that normal?

My other laptops normally dim it down and turn off if keyboard is not touched for a while.

 

Thank you,

Sean

Hi SeanFeldman ,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


WIth this design model it would instead have a manual backlit control (page 28 ):

Fn + Space: Adjusts the keyboard backlight (off → dim → bright → off)


Hope this help answer your query.


Regards

Thanks.

Yes, I've found that. Wish the backlit would be automatically shut off when keyboard is not in use.

Unnecessary energy waste imo.

Hi SeanFeldman , 

 

Greetings.

 

As having a backlit keyboard is an innovation on modern laptops nowadays more so with dim regulation control , I do agree that it does take out energy out for the battery to rather be conserved. 

 

Backlighting technology is directly linked to the hardware so hoping that sleep can control it too but doesn't have a driver /software to integrate it on Windows yet (perhaps BIOS coding too).

 

We have a special category here in our community for ideas like yours for future innovations .

With your input, we can have engineering folks and developers review it .

 

Regards

It's ok to disagre.

BTW, it's not so innovative Smiley Happy Dell and Mac have that for years.

Hi SeanFeldman , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Having users posting their concern would allow engineers if there is enough concern for such features. 

For me on as a hardware guy, pressing Fn + Spacebar is just a small step if I were to compare the importance of having it non connected to any BIOS or software as this allows me to check for motherboard integrity . 

 

If the backlit keys works even without booting to the operating system , then I would know that the systemboard interact to input and respond with approprite output then I can interpret that the systemboard is viable.

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 910 keyboard backlit doesn't go off

This is where we disagree. I'm not a hardware guy. To me the experience matters more.

When interacting with a course for example, if I leave the keyboard, I want it to dim and turn off, not explicitely cycle through all the modes every time to turn it off.

 

As I said, we don't have to agree on this as we represent two different categories of users. An analogy I'll bring would be a vehicle. You want a quite and comfortable ride in your vehicle, not a noisy one just to know that pistons are firing properly and there's a proper timing just because you are a mechanic Smiley Happy

Hi SeanFeldman , 

 

Greetings. 

 

It is good to have discussion on different views as it allows fellow members be aware of the scenarios on hand.

To answer the initial query : Yoga 910 keyboard backlit doesn't go off. Is that normal? 

It is normal as backlit for the keyboard is mechanically connected and is independent from OS control  into modes (Fn + Space: Adjusts the keyboard backlight (off → dim → bright → off).

 

Regards

Re: Yoga 910 keyboard backlit doesn't go off

really? REALLY?  You are aguing that needing to press the fn-space key twice to turn off the backlit is better?  I'm used to having my backlit keys automatically turn off on my Surface, my Dells and Macs.  And you are calling this innovation?  What if I'm watching a movie?  Oh, that's right, I now have to turn off my backlight.  You want innovation?  Then give you cutomer an option to leave the backlit on ALL THE TIME or give them an option to set a TIMER TO AUTO TURN OFF.

 

I'm this close to returning my top of the line 910 that I bought yesterday.  Right Shift issue is killing me.  And no, TweakKeys or SharpKeys is not a practical option for me.  I use the up-arrow key all the time and i don't want to have to go to the right to press the up arrow key.  And I use several different computers throughout the day - I can't get used to one set of arrow key arrangement just for one laptop.
