I was wrong. If I remove power then plug in (aka usb3 to usb2 while booting up), I get the default red tone.

I hope they have a fix for it soon. Hard to type in the dark for Windows password.

I to am experiencing the issue with the K70 RGB LEDs staying on after the PC is shutdown. Running Asus Extreme-Z IV with latest update.

For the sake of providing further details the Roccat Ryos, Roccat Kone XTD and Steelseries Siberian Elite all power down properly.

I have tried powering the keyboard from 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports via the Asus PA248 3.0 powered USB port.

I am using the work around of dimming the keyboard until resolved.

If you require further details or have a BETA software I could try do not hesitate to reach out.

On the flip side the K70 worked like a champ in the BIOS (flipping the bios switch) unlike the aforementioned keyboard.

Just got my K70 RGB and I am having the staying on issue as well. :(

I managed to solve it by using ErP setting but I don't want to leave it that way because as mentioned, it cuts down on features like Wake on LAN.

I really hope a firmware update fixes this. Not too happy with my 1 day old K70 RGB so far.

Hey guys, I have a K70 and I don't know if anyone has mentioned this but in addition to my keyboard staying on AFTER shut down. I unplug my keyboard, wait a moment then replug it in and the keyboard just lights back up. Currently when my computer is off I simply leave my keyboard unplugged which I feel is a bit silly. I've been unplugging and replugging so much lately hope it doesn't affect the connector or ports. However, if lets say I turned my computer off to go to sleep, wake up in the morning and replug in my k70 before turning it on, the keyboard doesnt light up. It only lights up if I plug it in soon after shut down. I'm not much of a hardware guy but just wanted to describe above situation, anyone else experiencing something similar as well? Oh yes, once again I am on an ASUS Z87-A LGA for intel chipset running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit if that helps at all.

Actually, there is firmware 1.13 that you should install.

This occurs on the latest firmware & CUE version. (Not that CUE would have an impact on the KB behavior once the PC is off)

But yes, with 1.13 firmware, when you power off your PC, the KB will stay lit with whatever profile you 'saved to the device'. (Hardware profile)

So you should be able to make a profile called "sleep" or whatever, set the keys to all black and bind one key to rotate to the next profile(s) when you want the keys to light back up however you want? So it should work like: put the computer to sleep and the keyboard defaults to the "sleep" profile and turns all the lights out. Wake the computer, keys are still out as its in "sleep" profile, hit F1 or whatever key you bind to do the profile switching and then they keyboard lights up to whatever profile you had next in the list. Maybe?

Hello here ! i think Dochogan give the solution for that issue . Like a lot of people , i got the led's issue don't turning off with PC after installing the last CUE version . At the fisrt install , i delete the new profil saved in memory keyboard named HwProfile1 -_- and replace it by my personal profile so i can't say if this profile (HwProfile1) is the probleme for the led's issue ...
But for me , create a default new profile called HwProfile1 with no lights for each keys and saved it on memory keyboard and my personal profile set as default (automatic) profil , solved the probleme : keyboard turn off with PC / but no lights during the start up of PC -_- / my personal profile is loaded when CUE start .
So let try that until CUE update , works for me -__-

This doesn't always work, last night it did but the previous night the dimmer button didnt work, so I unplugged the keyboard and the lights went out.
But then I plugged it back in assuming the lights would stay off, but it came back on with the default read and white profile, followed by a rather pretty rainbow profile.

I should note that my coomputer wasn't actually asleep though, I had shut it down

Is it possible to assign a profile to shutting your pc down like with application profiles?

Hello guys, not sure if anyone has found a resolution for the issue of the k70 staying lit after system is shutdown. I found a solution for myself that may work for you to.

So to begin you need to make a new profile, name it what you want I named mine off, now you need to save that profile to the Device Memory. Now when you shutdown your system it should only see this profile that is on board of the device and no led's will be active except for the caps lock indicator. I hope this will help someone from having to unplug or dim every time from now on.

If your computer was shut down there shouldn't be power going to the usb ports and thusly lighting your keyboard. Maybe try to update the bios and see if that fixes the problem. Also if your looking for the keyboard to go dark when you put it to sleep look at my post a few spots up. Hope it helps.

FW 1.15 has a workaround implemented where the USB lights will deactivate when system is shutdown or in sleep mode. However, this workaround may still trigger the demo mode if the system is shutdown but sending power to the USB ports (ala phone charge mode). We recommend you disable this feature if this happens on your specific motherboard.

Hello there,

I also had the same issue.
I purchased 2 sets of K70 RGB.

After upgrade to the latest software, both my K70 RGB now will not turn off the LED after PC had shutdown.

I had tried to enable EuP in BIOS but the LED still won't turn off.

I don't face any issues with many other keyboards.
I only had issue with Corsair K70 RGB.
I tried to swap the keyboard with my old Ducky Shine 3, immediately the LED will turn off after shutting down my PCs, but not with Corsair K70 RGB

Below are my CPU spec... both of these PCs had issue with LED won't turn off after shutdown.
My System #1:
Mobo: Asus X99 Deluxe
CPU: Intel i7-5690x
RAM: G.Skillz DDR4 3200Mhz - 32GB
GPU: Asus TitanBlack 6GB
O/S SSD: Plextor M.2 PCIe 256GB
Sec SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB
PSU: Corsair AX1200Watt

My System #2:
Mobo: Asus Vanguard B85
CPU: Intel i7-4770
RAM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600Mhz - 8GB
GPU: EVGA GTX-680ti
O/S SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB
PSU: Corsair 1000Watt

Not true. Some ports can still have power as long as your PC is plugged into the wall. You can usually change it in the BIOS.
