Backlight always on(sleep or shutdown) X120e

2013-12-18, 3:56 AM



Been looking for a solution for a while to no avail...here's the issue


My backlight is always ON even when on sleep or shutdown at varying brightness depending on the power state.


-When on AC (in sleep or shutdown, or 'display off' through PowerManager) the backlight is visible even in a lit room - Display is off, no images, just backlight.(brightest)


-When off AC (in sleep or shutdown) backlight is visible (when in dark room)


-Everytime display changes from on to off, I will see that backlight goes completely off for a moment but when it settles in its new power state the backlight always returns.


-Finally, the backlight only completely goes off when i disconnect the battery.


I've only ever done required updates through lenovo and windows update. My display works and looks perfect otherwise, laptop performs as it should. Recently installed a new(original lenovo) battery because it needed replacement..



Any ideas? Thanks!
