Default Corsair Polaris MM800 Lighting

For the life of me I can't figure out how to turn off the lighting when I lock my PC. How can I do this?

For my keyboard I just saved a 'blank' profile to device memory, but the Polaris doesn't have a 'device memory' so I can't do the same trick.

How do I go on about doing this? My PC is in my bedroom and I can't sleep with a lightshow going on.

Thanks

Unfortunately, the MM800 cannot store lighting profiles so it will not be possible to turn off the lighting effect that plays when CUE is not running.

That sounds a bit.. retarded? How could Corsair overlook this? I cant see how not turning the lighting off is not even an option in CUE. Just makes no sense.

Can someone from Corsair weigh in on this? The Razer Firefly (yes I am talking about a competitor) can do this basic requirement just fine.

It could be patched with a firmware update to make it dark when its turned off.

Let's hope this will come sooner rather than later.

I'll talk to the devs but most likely its not up to them.

That would be great. It's quite a basic functionality if I am perfectly honest and I am unsure why none of the Corsair peripherals have this. I own a K75 RGB LUX, a Scimitar and a Polaris. I also own some competitor peripherals and all seem to have the functionality to turn off lighting after X amount of inactivity and/or when Windows is locked.

As a developer myself, I don't think this is hard to implement, but I guess it just needs to get in the pipeline of having it done.

If you could get back to me with some feedback that would be great.

Thanks

Unfortunately there is no setting to save lighting to the mouse pad. The only thing you can do is disable the USB power setting when the system is asleep via the BIOS.

Could you not have a time out function in CUE that sets all lights to black? Since CUE always runs and is always needed for the pretty lights and functionality could the software not save/store and control this type of setting?

I regret getting the mouse pad now. When my computer's locked, my M65 and K95 are all blacked out while my MM800 is going nuts. If CUE can't be accessed, it seems like there's no need for the light show.

They really need to address this. It's a huge turn off.

Exactly. This needs to be fixed ASAP. (although I've still not managed to get my Scimitar RGB to black-out when locked either; my K75 LUX blacks out fine.)

I've just bought the MM800 and very much consdidering returning it unless the ability to disable lighting while in sleep or inactivity is updated. If CUE isn't available the light show should default to some user defined state (or just simply OFF).

It would be a huge shame to have to return a great mouse pad just because of a simple feature that the competition already has...
