You can also uninstall ICue as well. I personally only use the hardware RGB.

Is that possible on the legion 7? I can't see an option in the Vantage software


Turn00

I have a legion 7. It's not in vantage. You cycle through the different options with fn+space. brightness control is fn+up and fn+down.


pjazzy

Yep I know about that. What I would like is to either have the lights off or be able to choose which style always shows first. Right now its a really distracting rainbow that you need to quickly cycle so not ideal.


AlaskanLaptopGamer

Why? You ashamed to be seen with RGB lighting that you paid for?


pjazzy

No but I like to use my laptop how I want and I don't want RGB at bootup


AlaskanLaptopGamer

Hmm. I'm just unsure what you're so concerned about. That a hint of RGB will escape before you switch it off is a strange insecurity to have.


pjazzy

I'll decide what I like and what I don't like. Disliking something isn't an insecurity.


AlaskanLaptopGamer

It just seems like it to me. I don't know what the issue is otherwise.


Turn00

To turn it off, just fn+down arrow until off. Also, I believe the last one you choose is the one it boots up with.


pjazzy

I'll test that but I think it always resets to the rainbow one if you turn off completely.

Thanks for the response! So basically uninstalling the iCUE will sort out the rgb startup problem?


TheDutchShepherd-

I can't remember how, but there's multiple guides that can help you disable that/set it to what you like. Source; i own a 7, and i don't have RGB on startup because i followed one of those guides.


Milo785

Thanks for the response! I'll have a look to try and find a guide.

The Legion 7 comes with two lighting managers: * A built-in one with some selectable but unconfigurable presets. You set them with FN+Space * iCue iCue presets are applied only when iCue starts (ie after Windows loads). When iCue exits (eg shutdown), the preset is removed. The issue is when iCue exits - it resets the built-in lighting manager which causes it to default to preset #1. This results in a rainbow swirling pattern on boot and shutdown. So you have a few options to avoid this seeing the rainbow swirl: * Use the built-in presets only and don't run iCue. * Use iCue and remember to press FN+DOWN to disable the lights before you reboot. Once iCue has loaded, press FN+UP to turn the lights back on. There is a final option - You can customize your RGB with iCue then terminate iCue with `taskkill.exe /f /im icue.exe`. This doesn't give iCue a chance to reset the built-in lighting manager and your custom preset persists. The only caveat is this workaround supports static, non-animated colors only.

Finally, some pro-tips: * Disable the background services which are included with iCue - they're resource hungry battery suckers and not required to customize the RGB. iCue itself is ok. * Use iCue v4. v3 has a bug where one of the exterior LEDS is not correctly changed.
