Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Hi Smurf,

 

this is easy. What you need to do is to create a .txt-file (google how to create .bat, name is as you like, e.g. killtposd.bat) which killst the tposd.exe while started.

 

.bat content is:

 

@ECHO OFF
TASKKILL /IM tposd.exe

save it somewhere and place a shortcut in Windows Startup:

(WIN + R: shell:startup)

Voilá.

Procedure is also descibed in the comments section of my last updated script, vide supra.

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Thanks Ruffy,

Unfortunally that didn't work.  It appears that Lenovo did a BIOS update and added several items.  MY guess is that had something to do with it.  I have looked in the BIOS but didn't see any options that might cause it.  I'm lost.

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Ruffy,

Thanks to my son I have solved my charm problem,  It may be of help to others who are not savey.  This link says it all (take note of the note after #3)  Worked great for me.  It's simply a setting that's available. https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/jp/en/solutions/ht002122

Cheers

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Guys, I took some of the ideas from ligius- here and created a Windows Service that ensures the backlight is on at boot and also re-enables it after system resumes from sleep if you want to give it a go.  Path's and brightness are currently hardcoded but I'll add the option to use a config file at some point.

Give it a go.  Hopefully it works for you all too.Smiley Very Happy

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Hello JooJooBee666,

I have downloaded LBCService to folder d:\backlight and run C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\installutil.exe -u "d:\backlight\LBCService.exe"

But it does not create LBCService.exe and gives me the error System.IO.FileNotFoundException:

Can you help ?

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Yep, sorry about that. The install command in my README has a typo.  Do NOT use the -u option, that's the uninstall option. Smiley Frustrated The command should be

 

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\installutil.exe "d:\backlight\LBCService.exe"

Hello, sorry but i have the same error ...

The translation from portuguese to english

 

An exception occurred while initializing the installation:
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The file or assembly 'file: /// D: \ backlight \ LBCService \ LBCService.exe' or one of its dependencies could not be loaded. The system could not find the file specified.

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Hmm, not real sure what's happenning then. Smiley Sad Could be some weird issue  with your OS language setting or something.  It installs fine for me on 3 separate systems.  Do me a favor, check event viewer to see if there is a bit more details on the missing resource, open an issue on my github page and post the results.  I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

Re: can i configure backlit keyboard on a P51 to be always on

Hi Punch Card,

 

Keyboard_Core.dll is inlcuded in Lenovo Vantage App, which is available in the Microsoft Store.

On my system, win 10, it is located in 

C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins\ThinkKeyboardPlugin\x86\Keyboard_Core.dll

Good Luck!
