Default ML fans don't keep iCUE settings when I lock my PC

Hey guys,

I have:

7 ML120 Pro RGB fans
2 ML140 Pro RGB fans
32GB Vengeance RGB RAM
Commander Pro
RGB LED Hub

all set up and they all work just fine and are recognized by iCUE/Link. My issue is that when I lock my computer, the fans default back to the "Spiral Rainbow" default light setting in iCUE. The RGB Vengeance RAM does not do this. It's only the fans.

Ever seen this before?

Hi buddy.. when locked iCue wont be running which means your active profile is not in control anymore.

At the moment you have 2 options.... switch it off.. or don't lock it, the 'work around' i came to is.. do i need it locked if i am there? lol

Well, I'm a security engineer, so...security's a big deal!

My RGB Vengeance RAM still stays the same profile I set it to in iCUE even when my PC is locked. It's just the fans that change back to default.

Yes, the RAM is actually running in the hardware. The fans (and strips and other things) are not. When the machine is locked, iCue disconnects from all USB devices. This flips then to their default mode ... rainbow.

From what I understand, they are working on options for this but I have no ETA.

It's annoying, but most of the Corsair devices default to the rainbow pattern unless you can store a local profile (keyboard and mouse).
