Default Help! LED Issue, Lights Stay On Even After Shut Down!

The title of this thread, the LEDs on my keyboard remains on even after I shut down my computer.
Despite the pretty lights I'd prefer not to have the lights remain after I'm finished with it!

I've had some weird situations where this happens too. I have Win8, and if I shut down from the login screen, the lights stay on. However, if I'm logged in to the computer and shut down from there, it kills the lights (unrelated note, my Blue Snowball mic stays on regardless).

I have a blue snowball and my windows 8 does the same thing! Shutdown while logged in turns off my keyboard, but the little red LED on my snowball remains on.

On a side note, wearing red/blue 3d glasses and making your keyboard red and blue is... an interesting effect lol.

The problem can be solved in the bios (I had that on my laptop and it was draining all the battery). You have to disable "usb charging" (if my memory is well)
That is an option that will make your computer still supply power to usb ports even when the computer is turned off.

Yeah that's what I've been doing.
But as all of us with this light issue I'm pretty sure we would all prefer it if the keyboard would just shut down without us having to manually turn it off!

Hmm, you're going to have to be specific with your suggestion I'm afraid.
Many motherboards have different BIOS's, I may not have the same BIOS as you so I may or may not even have that option in mine haha.
Just to get a better idea as to what BIOS you have, what motherboard do you have?

That was on my Asus G74...

Option may be named otherwise, on my G74 it's named "USB charge". Check, it's quite explicit sometimes.


It's not mine, but it's the same option.

Awesome, this is definitely worth checking out. Although I've gotten used to seeing the red light from my Snowball mic, it can't be great on my power bill...

Glad to see that I'm not the only person that's had this issue. Honestly though, for the first few months that I've had it, I've just been tossing a dark t-shirt over mine. The problem is that my wave profile freezes upon shut down, and I end up having to reboot the computer to get it animated again... But as some of you mentioned, adjusting the brightness light also seems to work too. Lately, that's what I've been doing just before I put my pc to sleep. If I don't turn off the light before putting my pc to sleep, the lights end up staying on all night, or until I remove the pc from sleep mode.

My previous keyboard (from a different manufacturer) always used to turn the illumination off when I shut my Win7 laptop or my Win8.1 PC down, or put them in sleep mode. My new K70 RGB does not. It is annoying.

As PEagle suggested, I do have a BIOS setting to disable USB charging. However, I don't feel I should have to do this. Maybe I want USB charging enabled... And I don't want to have to manually turn the keyboard lights off every single time. And my M65 RGB mouse (which also stays illuminated) provides no way to turn the lights off, short of unplugging it.

How long is the life of these LEDs supposed to be? 50,000 hours? That's about 5.5 years. I expect at least that much use out of this keyboard.

Depending on your mobo there might be a few ports that arent always powered. Thats how it is on mine. But at the same time its 5 years old so they might have decided all USb ports need power always lol

This issue will be resolved in the next firmware update just a quick headsup.
