There is the equivalent to hardware lighting for the RAM but it works a little differently. If you click on "Settings" up the top and then select your RAM, you'll see an option "Enable full software control". With this option checked, you are running the equivalent of the "Lighting Effects" for say, a K95 keyboard. Uncheck this option and you're essentially running hardware lighting. In both cases, you need to configure the lighting through the "Lighting Effects" under the RAM in ICUE.

 

TLDR; RAM doesn't follow how other Corsair devices configure hardware/software lighting. For hardware lighting, uncheck the "Enable full software control" under "Settings", for full control of the RAM (and more options for lighting), check "Enable full software control".

So, if for example I want an effect to be shown whern pc is sleeping, I uncheck the option and set it. But will I be able to recheck the option, set the effect I want when pc is running, and so use both?

Yes, that is exactly what you do. If you want it to do slow Rain while in sleep mode, set that with the 'enable full software control off'. Then click it back on and set the one you want when CUE is running. It will work normally and you can set different software effects in each profile. They all will cycle appropriately with the Rain effect only entering when CUE is not running.

 

More commonly, you can set the HW mode to static black so it is off during sleep but on the rest of the time.
