I'd like to turn off the keyboard backlight on my new Lenovo Y70 laptop.

Is there a built-in way of doing this?
Or is there a way to physically disconnect the backlighting from the power supply, if I opened it up myself?


The key combination Fn + Space will adjust the keyboard backlight between off, dim, and bright modes.

  • worked for my t550 as well. Seems like universal combination for lenovo. – Bruno Gelb Jun 14 '16 at 9:22

on my Lenovo T440 it's Fn + Space, I'd suspect the Y70 has the same shortcut
