Wronf color profile on WIndows 10 lockscreen

Hello,

I have a problem when I put my Windows 10 on lockscreen (keys: WIN + L to enter lockscreen): the keyboard's light change but I never created THAT profile.

It seems it uses a merged profile between two of those I created, but it seems there is no way to avoid this.

 

I would like to TURN OFF light when I put Windows on its lockscreen....

 

I read many threads in this forum but I didn't find anything on K95 RGB.

On other keyboard it seems there is a CUE option called "Send profile to device memory" but there isn't this option on my CUE 2.

Maybe K95 RGB doesn't support profile in its memory?

 

I'm already running latest CUE (2.16.87) and K95 RGB firmare (2.05) versions.

 

Thx in advance.

It can be found in the profiles menu denoted as a memory card icon

 

Yes there are 3 "memory card" icons but are used to save a profile to "M1", "M2" and "M3" macro keys. I already saved 3 different profiles to these "Mx" keys, but when Windows goes to lockscreen it seems like all 3 profiles are merged in a single one and used it during the lockscreen period.

Just for clarification, you have saved two profiles in different M1-3 slots and what is happening is the static lighting effect is being merged into one profile once CUE disconnects?

 

Close CUE, Does the keyboard lighting return to what it is suppose to be or is it "merged".

 

What version of CUE are you currently using?

What firmware is the keyboard on?

Can you upload the two profiles here?

I created 3 profiles and assigned each of them to one of "Mx" macro keys:

- M1: as "Development" profile where all keys are soft-blue

- M2: as "Diablo 3" profile where all keys are soft-blue and only few keys are red

- M3: as "Test" profile where all kays are soft-blue and when I click on key it become yellow for 1 second

 

When I lock Windows (using WIN+L key combination) what appens is that a merge of those 3 profiles become active: "all keys are soft-blue" + "some keys in red" (those set in "Diablo 3" profile) and "when I press one key it becomes yellow for 1 second". So M1+M2+M3 seems to be merged in one single profile while the "M1" led is on.

If I press "M2" all keys become red but "Q,W,E,R,D,F" and all "Gx" keys are white.

If I press "M3" all keys similar of "M1" whith small changes.

Closing CUE when Windows is in use (not in lockscreen) gets the same result as putting it on lockscreen.

So when the keyboard is disconnected from CUE, the issue starts to happen.

 

What version of CUE are you currently using?

What firmware is the keyboard on?

As I wrote in the first post, I'm running latest CUE software and Keyb firmware

 

I attached my 3 profiles.

I am unable to reproduce your issue. It is a bit odd as the keys can only go yellow when CUE is running in the background.

 

Have you tried a soft reset?

Unplug the keyboard, Hold the ESC key down while plugging the keyboard back in.

 

This will reset the keyboard back to defaults e.g. Red+White scheme then resave the profiles and see whether it results in the "merged" effect.

 

Can you also open CUE and make sure the profile current selected is the correct one when the yellow effects start running?

Just tried that.

Now when I reach lockscreen or I close CUE, the keyboard stays in its default state (all keys red but few white and something like that as you said: "Red+White scheme").

 

I think to have found something...

If I create a "Default" profile and leave it at the top of the list, it seems to be used during lockscreen or when CUE is closed.

So my changes are:

- M1: "Default" profile set all lights off

- M2: "Development" profile set all keys soft-blue

- M3: "Diablo 3" profile

In this way when I close CUE (or goes to lockscreen) the Default/M1 profile is selected.

No more "merge" effect.

 

It seems that Profile list follows "Mx" progression, so the default profile used when CUE is unreachable from the kayboards is the profile saved in "M1".

I don't know why a "merging effect" was happening before the reset....

Download the latest iCUE and let it update the FW on the K95.

Then click profiles. You will see a "default "profile That's not saved to keyboard itself, that's the working one it uses when not locked, set that to whatever you want when not locked.

See the K95 HW1, K95 HW2 and K95 HW3 profiles..., those are the ones saved on keyboard itself.

Select the K95 HW1 and make changes. Then click "Onboard profiles" from bottom left, then select the K95 HW1 icon looks like a SD card in the window that appears to the right, select overwrite. This saves the changes to the HW1 profile on the keyboard and that's used when it's locked. Just did this, working for me.
