For some stupid reason this useless feature self-enables each time I reboot.  This extreamely annoys me! I could not found BIOS option to permanently disable it. How can I do that?

My keyboard backlight doesn't go on and off automatically anymore depending on how light or how dark it is.  I have discovered this happens since i "upgraded" Lenove Settings to Lenove Vantage. I never gave it much thought because it worked always. Now that it is somehow gone i am experiencing how highly inconvenient this is in my work flow.  There isn't even an option anymore in Lenovo Vantage to enable automatic backlight... Why? I have never heard of 'upgrades' that actually demote an important every day function, and add an inconvenient annoyance.   Please tell me i am missing something, otherwise there is no excuse for this horrible 'upgrade'. Thanks.

Hey there, I found a similar topic but unfortunately, there was not a final response that solved my problem. I own a Yoga 13 Ideapad without the backlight function, unfortunately. Recently I watched a video of a keyboard replacement and I would like to do that with mine in order to replace it with a backlight keyboard. The problem is that I am not sure if my model features the needed connections. The model number is: 219159342273 if that helps.  I found backlight keyboards described as "original" Lenovo parts for about 30?. Is that realistic or fake?Thank you for your help!!!

Hi, I have a XPS 13 9350 and would like to know if it's possible to limit the charging or stop battery charging? I saw that this is possible with Dell Battery Meter but I can't find the right version for my laptop.
Also, I would like to know if it's possible to make the keyboard backlighting turn off after a longer period of time? Right now, it turns off far too soon after interaction.

Hello, I just got a new Yoga 260.   I immediately upgraded to a Samsung SSD and have reinstalled my own Win10.  I've installed all of the official Lenovo drivers, including for Hotkey.  One thing I have noticed though is that the factory-installed OS, when using Fn-Spacebar to turn on the keyboard backlight, had 4 stops:Off, On Low, On High, and Auto This was new - I hadn't seen an auto keyboard backlight option on any ThinkPad before.  However, now that I have reinstalled my own OS and am using the downloaded version of the Hotkey driver, I only have the traditional 3 options to cycle through:Off, On Low, On High   -    Auto is missing. Does anyone know a version of the Hotkey driver, or maybe a regedit, that will restore the 4th "auto" keyboard backlight option? 

A:Yoga 260 Auto Keyboard Backlight

On my Yoga 260 with factory-installed OS, I have the 4 stops when "Auto Keyboard Backlight" is enabled in the Lenovo Settings app, but I have only 3 stops when "Auto Keyboard Backlight" is disabled in that app.  If you didn't install the Lenovo Settings app after reinstalling your own OS (assuming it's still Windows?), then that's probably the answer - but I'm not sure about whether the auto stop can be enabled without installing that app, which many people would understandably want to avoid.

I have one area I would like to find a solution.  On my Surface, our Macbook and my work Dell, the keyboard backlight, when turned one, will turn off after 5-10 seconds of inactivity. When activity resumes, the light turns back on. Of course you can manually turn the light on and off.  With the Yoga 920, I can only get to either be on / off. What am I overlooking? Jeff

Hi, I want the keyboard backlight on my Yoga 900 to default to "on".  Currently, the default is off. Every time the computer sleeps, hibernates, restarts, I have to manually turn the keyboard backlight on. It's annoying to have to manually turn it on over and over, particularly when the room is dark. I want it to always come on by itself and only turn off when I manually turn it off.  I looked but could find no suitable setting.  Any suggestions.?  Any registry edits that can take care of this.?  Thanks much.!

Hey everyone, Recently bought this laptop. Loving everything about it. However, I did a fresh install of Windows 10 (it wasn't an upgrade from Win8.1, but rather a new install of Win10 after I replaced the harddrive to a 1TB SSD). Since then I've reinstalled everything I could get from the site. Every Lenovo driver set and utility. Updated the BIOS. Consulted the Solution Center. Ran scans from the utilities and the site. I've literally tried EVERYTHING that's obvious, and I can't get the backlight to come on at all. When I first received the laptop with the old harddrive, the backlight worked just fine. Since I put in the new SSD with a fresh install, I cannot for the life of me get it to turn on. Pressing Fn+SPACE gets it to show the little icon on screen that it's SUPPOSED to be turned on, but it isn't on. So I'm at a loss here. I sincerely doubt it's a hardware issue, because literally the only thing that's changed is the harddrive. If there's a specific driver for the keyboard backlight, I'd love to know about it. Thanks in advance!

Do you want to try out something just to check that the keyboard light is working?
I have a TP Yoga 14 here and when I access the BIOS the keyboard lights up when I press "FN+Space", give it a try if it works for you.
 
I do not know if it requires an special driver, but I'm using the Windows 10 that was updated over the Win8.1 that came included.
 
The other things that cames to my mind is trying to boot other OS from the USB and see if the keyboard lights up.

Whenever I first got my laptop, I went in Lenovo Vantage and turned auto keyboard backlight off. It appears as though the new Vantage no longer has this setting. Now the auto backlight defaults to on every time I turn on the computer, while I want it to be off everytime I boot up the computer. Is anyone else having this problem? There is no backlight setting in Vantage anymore.

I was annoyed that it was missing from Vantage.  BUT I figured out if you hold down the "Fn" + "spacebar"  it will cycle through high, low, auto.  But I have to warn you upfront that you may have to go through several cycles before "auto" appears.  I just tested and "auto" did not appear until the 3rd time I cycled though the options.

Hi
Welcome to the forums.
 
I'm not sure what can be the issue, but can you try checking the "Lenovo Settings" application to check if your keyboard backlight turns on?
?
The Lenovo Settings is on the Windows Store , but you also need to install the Dependecy Package.
 
But just checking the support site I found there is a BIOS update that says:
(1.08)
- (Fix) Fixed an issue that "Fn + Space" cannot control KB backlight after exit shipping mode.
 
Please double check if this is your model support site. Maybe you should apply that BIOS update too.
 
I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a problem, quite anoying, for several months now. When I purchased my X380 Yoga, I was able to manage different default settings regarding the keyboard.If I remember well, those options were in Lenovo Vantage or Lenovo Settings and I was able to set that the backlight of the keyboard should be off by default. But Lenovo Vantage was completely redesigned maybe 6 or 10 months ago. And since then:- I'm not able to find this setting any more- and the backlight of the keyboard is now always on by default!And even if we switched it off during a session, it's coming back on kind of "as soon as possible", if we reboot the PC or it's going to sleep mode, etc. Any possible opportunity for the system, it's bringing back the keyboard backlight. So question: where is this setting to disable by default the keyboard backlight now? Thanks for your help!  P.S.: BTW, it looks like I'm not the only one with this issue...https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/How-to-permanently-disable-keyboard-backlight...

The backlight on my keyboard has been inoperable for sometime. Using the function key and pressing space does not work to turn the backlight on as it used to. The problem does not seem to be hardware related as the caps lock key still has an operational backlight when depressed, but the rest of the keyboard will not light up. I have tried installing bios to correct the problem, I have navigated through the installed Lenovo apps to no avail. I suspect that this problem started as a result of a Windows update some time ago, but am not sure exactly when this started.

I encountered a problem where the laptop cannot be turned off. Whenever the power button is held down to forcibly shut off the system, the keyboard backlight would turn off for a second and then turn back on again but the screen would still be dark. A slight popping noise is also made by the speakers. The caps lock and num lock is also unresponsive. The keyboard backlight can still be cycled through different modes by pressing Fn + Space. The fan can also be heard running. This may be unrelated, but this happened as I was pressing Fn + Power button while the computer was booting up.

For anyone having trouble sleeping, this ones for you.  Several weeks ago the keyboard backlight function on my Latitude E6510 (it's a recond unit from Dell Direct w/Core i3 M370, 4 GB RAM, running Win7 Pro/32-bit) stopped working. I've had the unit for over 3 years. 
Anyway, when the backlight stopped working I ran a diagnostic that produced a "warning" about the HD's imminent failure.  Not sure that was related to the keyboard issue, but taking it to heart I replaced the HDD with a SSD (cloning the HDD to the SSD).  When that didn't resolve the issue, I posted to the Forum and someone suggested doing a clean install of Win7 Pro, which I did.

A:X1 Yoga and Intel ME Firmware update being pushed but how?

Lenovo System Interface Foundation (LSIF) is doing this.  The only purpose of this app is to support Lenovo Settings and Lenovo Companion, so if you don't install these apps, there is no point to install LSIF.  One of the features of LSIF is to automatically install "critical" updates for Lenovo software and drivers, such as this recent Intel ME Firware update.
 
The Deployment Guide for Lenovo Settings and/or Companion explains this feature and how to disable it:  https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/hf003321
 
I have copied-and-pasted the relevent section below:
 
Chapter 4. Considerations for Deployment
 
Lenovo System Interface Foundation contains some features which may not be appropriate for enterprise customers.  Please read this section carefully to understand these features and consider whether they should be disabled in your specific environment. 
 
1.  Automatic Updates ? Lenovo System Interface Foundation updates itself automatically whenever a new version is posted to the Lenovo website. Some IT organizations will want to disable this.  The automatic update can be disabled by registry.  To do so, copy-and-paste the below text into a .reg file and then import it into your registry:

Hi All!Using the Lenovo System Update tool, I've updated the bios. It said everything went succesful.However under Device manager, there is an error for the System Firmware:"This device cannot start. (Code 10)Indicates a revision number encountered or specified is not one known by the service. It may be a more recent revision than the service is aware of."I've tried "Update Driver" but everytime with this same result.I've also tried "Uninstall Device". But then it goes back to a driver from 2006 (indeed the error is gone) and when I update the driver, the error is back. I've also downloaded the bios update file, and if I run it again it says I'm trying to install the same version that is already installed, so there is no need. So this indicates is did install. However, the error message under Device manager is there... Does anyone have a suggestion what could be going on?(I think the bios update, which just a few days back became available, is related to certain security problems that Intel was having...)
