ThinkPad Yoga 12 f1 key light always on - wont shut off

2015-04-22, 2:12 AM

Hello out there,

 

I wanted to do a fresh post about this issue as I see that no one has resolved it yet. My Lenovo Thinkpad 12's f1 key has an indicator light that is supposed to turn on or off depending on if it is muted or not. However, after upgrading to Windows 8.1 pro, it seems that the light has been on ever since. It could be unrelated, as this is simply when I started noticing the issue, but it's worth noting.

 

Specs:

ThinkPad Yoga 12

Windows 8.1 Pro

i5, 128 Gb SSD, 8 GB RAM

 

Troubleshooting already tried:

  • Restarting the machine
  • Turning the machine on / off
  • Installing Windows updates
  • Installing Lenovo updates (note I did not do all of them as some were only recommended and not required and I did not want a bunch of bloat ware on my PC)
  • Plugging in a wired headset and toggling the f1 key

 

Solved! See the solution

Double posting my solution here in:

 

Download and install the Hotkeys Integration for Windows 8.1: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-yoga-series-laptops/thinkpad-yoga-12/downloads/DS031814

 

Hope this works for you.

Pressing Esc+F1 will turn it off.

I just had this same issue on my X1 ThinkPad. ESC+Fn key+the mute button fixed it. The light went off and the speakers are working again.
