ThinkPad X220 : fingerprint sensor LED still turned on after shutdown

Hello, 

When I shutdown my X220, the fingerprint LED is still on ! And I think the fingerprint is still turned on.

How can I disable it ?

 

I can't install the Fingerprint Software on Windows 10 ("Windows Biometry Framework must be enabled", when I enable it, this message come back).

 

Thanks a lot...

have you updated the BIOS on the machine?

You probably have swipe to power on enabled. IIRC there was a setting in the BIOS that allowed you to toggle this behavior.

No, I can't disable it in BIOS...

Looks like the only simple toggle for this is through the fingerprint software.

Does trying to install it while in Windows 7 compatibility mode help any?

My fingerprint sensor seems to be fine with only the windows drivers and no Lenovo software in use at all
