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?

    Z15 still hard coded to sleep mode after 5 minutes.   Why is is even in the options to set it to whatever time you want when it doesn't work??  I find this very frustrating, annoying and almost shoddy.   Any updates planned?  Thanks

    All my testing with the current release of Unleash I was able to set the LED Sleep mode to more than 5mins. I may suggest doing a factory reset and reinstalling Unleash. We will be releasing an updated version soon to address some issues with Windows 11 and AMD systems. I'll pass this along to our team to see if they can recreate it. 
     
    UPDATE: Just got word from our software team that we will have an update soon to help address this issues along with some other on going bugs
