Greetings!
I just purchased a Z15 keyboard.  I'm attached to the PC via a USB 3.0 directly into the motherboard.   I'd like the backlights to  turn off when the PC sleeps (running Win 10 Pro).  Can't see where to configure this in Unleash or in Settings setup.
Any thought?
 
Many thanks

    Hi tfaust3,
     
    This is a known issue, and we expect to have a beta version later this week.

    @EVGATech_LeeM - Is there any update on the release of the beta version that will offer "sleep mode" for the Z15 keyboard? This is an option for the X17 mouse, which works well.

    Will the update also work when computer is "Shut Down". Occasionally I accidentally touch the keys it's cool that the lights come on but it does not time out like the mouse.

    FYI... there is now a sleep option for the Z15 in the Unleash RGB dashboard for version 1.0.11 which works the same as the X17 mouse. Thanks for adding this functionality EVGA!! :)

    The lights on my keyboard go off just fine just trying to set it past 5 mins does nothing. I would like to set my lights to go off after 60 mins but every 5 mins my lights to my mouse and keyboard go off even though I've set the timer to 60 mins.

    Apparently I was too quick to declare victory, I see the same behavior... 
     
    @EVGA_James - appears the timeout values are hard coded to 5 minutes? Any chance this can be adjusted in a future release?
