Since a few weeks the LEDs of my 2019-bought ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO motherboard stay on when i turn off my Windows 10 Pro PC. More precisely, the LEDs change into the default rainbow color pattern, no matter what settings I put in Aura. The only working way to turn them off that I found, is to turn off the PSU each time (which is cumbersome).
I would very much like to avoid having a rainbow party in my room while I am trying to sleep As LEDs aren't very important to me, I'd prefer to have the LEDs off at all times, if that's what it takes to turn em off when the PC is off.
What I already tried:
Turned off LEDs in Aura.
Change AURA setting in BIOS to "Stealth Mode", or "Off" (tried both, LEDs still stay on)
Change Windows shutdown to properly shut down (no hibernating or similar), also turned off Quickstart
Updated BIOS of my motherboard
Until recently, all LEDs turned off on shutdown (without having to alter settings to do so). Timing-wise I suspect the changed behaviour might be linked to a Windows Update, but that's not for certain.
Anyone got a good idea what else I could try to turn my LEDs off when my PC is off?
Hi SuchyX, Do you also select Stealth Mode in bios and set [Shutdown Effect] off in Armoury Crate? also disable fast startup in windows? Please refer to the instructions in the following link. https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1045607/ Was the motherboard aura light off after turning off the computer before update to windows 11 or windows update in windows 11? Thank you.
