Yoga 910 - Hot Keys keep turning off

Q: Yoga 910 - Hot Keys keep turning off

Every so often I open my laptop and try to change the display brightness or use any of the hot keys I find that they've been turned off. I've had this laptop for over two years and this just started happening recently. I was able to install an older version of Lenovo Vantage so I now have the ability to turn the hot keys back on, however it seems that this setting never saves and it always reverts to hot keys off. Anyone know a fix for this?

Whenever I change the Function Keys setting to use F1-F12 (via Lenovo Vantage), after a few reboots the setting changes back to using the Hot-Keys instead. Why?  And what can I do to stop this from happening?

Just got this Yoga 3 14 series laptop for cheap from a local shop, and it works great on Windows 10 except for one minor but annoying thing. In the Lenovo settings app, the keyboard settings for switching between F keys and the hot keys being on the function row are reversed. If I set it to have hot keys without FN, it instead does the F row functions without FN.If I set it to have F keys without FN, it instead does the hot key functions without FN. Anyone have this problem before, and is there a fix? Many thanks!

Hi
I have an ASUS laptop which runs windows 10 but does not have a CAPS/NUM/SCROLL lock indicator light. So naturally I enabled toggle keys, however 6 months on and the constant, irritating beep each time I press a button I need is starting to drive me insane. I have previously researched how to remove this 'toggle keys' feature after it would not disable if i just reversed the procedure i did to enable it. This involved using regedit and removing flags data and restarting the laptop. After numerous attempts this did not work. I have found related settings in the control panel and attempted to turn these off however I click apply and then ok but one return to the settings page the settings has not changes. I expect this is an issue in itself.

Would anyone be able to assist me on this and any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Regards, DP-K

A:Turning off Sticky keys Permanently!

Are you playing a lot of games etc? IF so, maybe turn your key mapping around, so if FIRE is your SHIFT key, why not make it the mouse button or something? Just a thought though, just a thought...

However, i am not 100% sure how you can turn it off. GO to the microsoft website and download the utilities program. this might be of some use.

So three weeks ago, I was working on my Yoga 3 14" and popped to get a drink, I came back and the screen was blank, I assumed it had gone to sleep, so hit a key to wake it up. Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I fe...

I looked online and read that I have to change the "sign- in settings'' so that It doesn't turn on my toogle keys whenever I restart my laptop. I did thta hoping it would fix the issue, however it is still happening.
After I reset everything (ease of access + sing in settings) and restart my laptop it turns everything on again. It even resets my sing in settings so that y tootgle keys turn on afater restart (even though I change it everytime).

Hello, I've had this laptop for a bit less than a year, so I believe the warranty is valid, but I'd like to know if there's anything I can do myself. I was using it plugged in although it had a full battery. I have an Anker power bank that was nearly out of battery, on which I was charging my phone. I thought it supported pass through charging but apparently it didn't, so my mistake. Upon connecting the bank (and the phone) to my laptop, the laptop immediately shut off and I could tell the lights in the room flashed very quickly. Since then (at writing this less than one day ago), the laptop will not power on. When connected to the wall the small charging light turns on and is white. The power button lights up for a couple of seconds before turning off again when pressed. Fans do not start, display does not turn on nor do the keyboard lights. I figured it may have overheated at first, but the bottom was not hot to the touch. There were no signs of smoke or smells indicating a bad electrical problem. I've tried pretty much just holding the power button for different amounts of time (10sec, 30sec, 1min) and nothing happens. I believe I've done something to the battery but I'd like to know what. Thank you.

I have had the 720 15" for almost a year and just recently been experiencing a problem with the fans. The fans are running even when I shut the lid of the computer and the computer is in sleep mode. The only way for me to stop the fans from running while the computer is in sleep mode is to manually power off the laptop. I am not sure why the fans just start to run even during sleep mode since this was not an issue previously.

Hello, for no reason my Yoga 520 (About a year old) has started shutting down when its on battery within 5 minutes of using it. The battery is always at 100% even when i reboot it and i've never had issues with the battery draining. It isn't just going to sleep either, its totally shutting down with no warnings. I have checked the battery by opening the back and everything looks in place and i have tried going through all the settings to see if its something in there but there isn't- i'd assume if it was shutting down due to power saving it would simply go to sleep not shut the whole system down.  Can someone give me some insight into what might be happening? Thanks,

It keeps turning off itself in a few minutes after unplugged even though the battery is fully charged.  Resetting it to reinstall Windows didn't make any difference.  It doesn't appear to be a thermal issue because it runs OK when plugged in.  I wonder if there's anything else to try before returning it for repair or replacement under warranty.

Hello,I'm having trouble since I recieved my LENOVO ThinkPad Yoga 14 two months ago.It is on guarantee.I've noticed that the master fan keeps starting even if the computer is not working at full capacity. Sometimes, it starts right after windows as finished booting! And it's a brand new computer, Intel i7 CPU and 8GO of RAM!The fan keeps working then even if I'm only surfing on the internet or working on word.It's REALLY annoying. I feel like this is already an old computer by it's blowing. My old computer, a 5 years old Toshiba Satellite, doesn't blow so much.I've searched over the web and found that LENOVO had released a new UEFI Bios that was suposed to fix this problem. I've installed it and nothing changed! The fan kept on turning on for nothing else than a gmail home page.I've already asked about another problem on the ThinkPad Yoga 14. It's about a background noise on the built in speakers. Here's the link: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Background-noise-on-ThinkPad-Yoga-14-bu...I'm not having a good experience with this Yoga 14. I was looking for professional quality and it is not.Can someone tell me if they have the same problems?What LENOVO is going to do about it?Thanks.Ludovic.

Hi ludovicfd Can you please post the full model number of you machine and which Windows version are you using?. For example my TP Yoga 14 is "20DM008UUS" and I didn't experienced those issues.  I'm guessing that your machine fan is blowing too much and making huge noise. In my case I can feel more the hard drive noise than the fan, it is not like the HDD is "that loud", but when you are on a quiet enviroment you can feel it "scrattching". Do you want to try first updating any firmware / BIOS on your machine at the latest level ? After that another alternative will be to try to update the driver for the chipset and power. The basic thing for me is to try to update the drivers and firmware this way:- Windows Update- Lenovo System Update- Lenovo Companionand after that search manually for updates on the Lenovo Support site with your specific model number. Sorry, it is trial and error to see if a driver can fix your issue. If after updating the drivers, you think it is hardware issue you should try to contact Lenovo's Customer Support site Regards

Hi! I got this laptop december 2014, it worked nice until one day it decided not to turn on, instead of this, the laptop shows sleep-mode behaviour (blinking keyboard, black screen) but without waking up. It initiates randomly, key-combination doesn't work, nor pushing windows key. Additionally, if I turn off by pressing the power button and try to turn on again, it keeps to be in sleeping mode. If is turned off again and the one key recovery is pushed, nothing happens, same sleep-mode reaction. I contacted technnical assistance in Spain, they were really kind and quick taking the call. As suggested I restored the system to fabric condicions (when I got my laptop turned on and through the windows 8.1 menu restoring to initial configuration option). It seemed to solve the problem but just for few re-starts. After using the computer about 10 times (I mean, turning off and turning on the laptop), the same problem appeared. I called again technnical assistance, today they are picking up my laptop at home because I'm still warranty covered, I hope to get my 1600? laptop working well again soon. Just wanted to share this situation with other lenovo users who can be in the same situation. In my case, I'm not using this laptop as a primary computer, that's maybe why it took so long to detect/appear this problem. I already tested updating bios, drivers, energy configuration...

The laptop was working just fine, then all of a sudden shut off on its own. I thought the battery might've ran out, so I plugged it in, tried to power it on but did not power on, even after hours of charge. The white light on the side is lit when plugged in, and the keyboard lights up for 1 second when pressing the power button before shutting back down. I've done the hold the power button for 15 seconds, release, hold for another 15 trick, but all that happens are the fans turning on high-mode for 2 seconds then shutting back off. I'm decently tech savvy and build my own computers, but just not laptops. This says to me the motherboard is still intact and isn't having an issue communicating with parts. If I were to guess on the next thing, it'd be the battery failing. I don't hear any beeps or anything, which usually occurs with CPU errors, and with the screen/system not turning on, I can't diagnose if the m.2 ssd is failing (most likely not the issue). I've found this maintenance manual online to replace parts, but unsure if this is a common issue that others are having, and which part should I look into replacing (if any). I don't have an active warranty on this anymore but prefer to not spend a couple of hundred of dollars at a repair shop. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
