X1 Carbon Caps Lock Indicator

The little LED on the shift key sometimes is on but Caps Lock is not on (all keys still in lower case). This is always the case when I log on freshly.  pressing Shift two times to enable Caps Lock (screen indicator comes on, ALL CAPS NOW) and pressing it two times again turns off Caps Lock as well as the LED indicator.  But sometimes it still behaves eradically.

 

Any software update on this?

I've noticed that too - so I turn it "off" but really I'm just turning it on, then have to turn it off for real.

Re: X1 Carbon Caps Lock Indicator

Hi folks,

 

this seems to be happening right after a restart.

 

Try this as a workaround:

- press Windows button + C

- click Settings

- click Change PC settings

- go PC and Devices

- go Typing

- switch 'Use all uppercase letters when I double-tap Shift' to Off

- restart

 

Let me know if it has worked for you.

Re: X1 Carbon Caps Lock Indicator

sorry, that was not it -- mine was already off. I also turned it on, rebooted, turned it off, rebooted -- no change. Smiley Sad

Re: X1 Carbon Caps Lock Indicator

I have the same issue here. Has anyone heard from support as to why it keeps coming on?
It will do it at random for me. I too end up turning caps lock on and off again just to get the light off, but then I look down after a while and see it's on again.

Really annoying!

Re: X1 Carbon Caps Lock Indicator

No luck here with mine, I have it set to off also.

I have lodged a support request with Lenovo, perhaps it is a faulty device
