Automatically Enable Backlit keyboard on Lenovo P51s?

2017-06-10, 2:46 AM

Hello, I'm enjoying my new P51s. Configured with PCIe SSD, etc it is a very nice work horse to say the least! Battery life is great. 12 hours of solid work with no issue. I have the large second battery.

 

My question is can I have the back lit keyboard come out either automatically or just simply be on all the time? It works fine to us the Fn+space but I'd rather it takes care of it's self and I can work happily!

Solved! See the solution

With "Lenovo Settings" application, you can turn automatic operation on or off, but if it is off, I believe backlight is off at startup.

Is this how you keep the back light from automatically turning off?

Hello,

 

I have searched in Lenovo Vantage application, but i can't find that option of turning backlight automatically ON when i power up the laptop.

 

Can you indicate the exact place of this configuration ?

 

Many Regards,

Silvestre

Hi SMalta,

 

you should consult this post, as it adresses your question in detail.

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile/can-i-configure-backlit-keyboard-on-a-P51-to-be-always-on/m-p/3949273/highlight/true#M72076

 

For the best of my knoledge there is at the moment no option in Vantage APP to startup with activated backlight nor to automatically turn it off while PC is inactive.

 

however this can be introduced by using an auto hotkey script AHK as mentioned in the link above.

Is there a solution for the L13 models with this issue of the backlit keyboard not staying lit?
