It's a mouse pad, so a timeout function wouldn't really work here... Technically, the device is ALWAYS idle. You may just want to do as James suggested above, turn off power to the USB when the computer is idle in the BIOS. This should be possible to assign to just a single USB port if you are using a recent motherboard.

Would it be possible, at the very least, to save the mousepad and headset holder color settings to a piece of hardware that CAN store profiles? Like the K95 or something?

Are there any updates? I mean one big question...the default lighting effect (rainbowspiral) which is activated when there is no connection to the cue has to be stored anywhere too or not? so why is there no possible way to edit this default thing..i mean my PC i always turned on and I cant turn my USB ports off so when I lock it my K95 and my Glaive is a very dark red that it is not that light in my room and my mousepad is completely unstopable...not that cool

Is there a firmware update for the ugly rainbow colors that default on lock screen? I want my mousepad to turn that ugly stuff off.

This is incredibly annoying and disappointing. I feel like it should be a core function for all of these RGB devices to have on-board memory, especially considering their price! How can you make the unchangeable default option an epileptic's worst nightmare???


Frankly, I would not have invested in many of the Corsair CUE products had I known this is what I was in for.

MM800
ST100

If you can patch this in firmware, please do it.

Or maybe create an intermediary USB device that sits between the DUMB device and the computer than 'adds' non-volatile memory that can store a profile for the downstream device to use.

I feel like the only way to explain this is straight up laziness.

WOW ..... there is no solution from Corsair since over 2 years
not just a simple modifed current firmware where the lights off by simple connected to USB and start the light effects if iCUE is paired only
So for example the firmware default should be "static color" 0/0/0....

I found the original MM800 Firmware in the forum, is anybody able to modify it
and we can use the "CRP DISABLD USB disk drive" option to exchange the FW on the pad.....

I agree, this is ridiculous and a complete waste of money. Can someone please release a firmware containing this simple fix. They claim that it's not possible, however, if I turn the brightness all the way to off, then lock the computer, the LED's stay off. Therefore a "sleep" setting is possible if they simply make the device think the brightness is set to zero.

Hello!

I have found a solution to MM800 not blacking out on pc locking:

Requirements:
  • Windows 10 (not sure about Windows 8/8.1 features)
  • Administration priviledges
The steps:
  1. Force update Firmware of MM800 in iCue. It's weird, but neglecting this step will result with an inability to disable the device.
  2. Open PowerShell with Administrator permissions (Win+X, then A, then Enter).
  3. Type:
    Code:
    Get-PnpDevice -InstanceId "USB\VID_1B1C&PID_1B3B*" | Ft -Wrap -Autosize InstanceId
    This should give you 3 InstanceIds for MM800:

    The one that we need is the topmost one. Copy it.
  4. [Optional] Try disabling and enabling the MM800 lights by issuing commands:
    Code:
    Disable-PnpDevice -Confirm:0 -InstanceId "USB\VID_1B1C&PID_1B3B\35800217018D2AAF042EAF5AC41B00F5"
    Code:
    Enable-PnpDevice -Confirm:0 -InstanceId "USB\VID_1B1C&PID_1B3B\35800217018D2AAF042EAF5AC41B00F5"
    replacing the stuff in quotation marks with yours.
    If the commands work correctly, proceed.
  5. Press Win+R, type "taskschd.msc", press Enter.
  6. On the right of the new window press "Create Task...".
  7. Type name of new task - e.g. "MM800 Off".
  8. Tick "Run with highest priviledges" and "Hidden". You might as well switch "Configure for" to "Windows 10", but I doubt if it changes anything.
  9. Switch to "Triggers" tab and create a new trigger.
    Change the "Begin the task:" field to "On workstation lock" and press OK.
  10. Switch to "Actions" tab and create a new action.
    In "Program/script:" field type
    Code:
    powershell
    and in "Add arguments (optional):" type
    Code:
    -command "Disable-PnpDevice -Confirm:0 -InstanceId 'USB\VID_1B1C&PID_1B3B\35800217018D2AAF042EAF5AC41B00F5'"
    again, replacing stuff in apostrophes with the InstanceId obtained in step 1. Mind the quotation marks and apostrophes.
  11. Repeat steps 6-10 with different values:
    • Name: e.g. "MM800 On".
    • "Begin the task:" On workstation unlock
    • "Add arguments (optional):
      Code:
      -command "Enable-PnpDevice -Confirm:0 -InstanceId 'USB\VID_1B1C&PID_1B3B\35800217018D2AAF042EAF5AC41B00F5'"
      again, replacing stuff in apostrophes with the InstanceId obtained in step 2.
    Everything else should stay the same.
  12. You're done. If you've done all the steps correctly, you should be awarded with nice black Corsair Polaris MM800 after station locking (Win+L). After logging in again, the mousepad should glow with whatever iCUE profile you've locked the PC.

Hope this helps anyone who's bothered by Feng-Shui breaking MM800 pad.

PS. This only disables the lighting, leaving the USB hub untouched.

Cheers,
Bartosz Rosadzinski

Wow! Thanks for the comprehensive write-up!
I will try this out and let you know how it works out.
