I bought the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse last week as my old mouse was getting a bit skanky and I wanted something nice to replace it with.

So far I like it but the one annoyance was that when I turned my PC off or it went to sleep the mouse would start up a lightshow even though I’d disabled the RGB lighting in the Logitech G HUB software.

It turned out that the solution to this was to save a profile without lights to the mouse and use it on-board memory mode so that it remembers to keep the lights off even when the PC isn’t on.

ok this worked like a charm works even on a wired mouse, because when you close g hub it would normally put the lights back on but this fixes the problem

Thanks, was driving me nuts 🙂

Thanks so much! This was really annoying. The software is poorly laid out and I didn’t even spot this. Clearly should be on by default anyway. Once again many thanks!

I used a knife and cut the internal lighting source. It should not require that level of ‘hacking’. I will never buy another logitech product.

I did this as well but whenever I turned off ghub or restarted the mouse, the lights would go back on. The trick was, after selecting lights to be off, to click “sync lightning zones” and then switch the on-board memory mode again. Now it’s finally off all the time

How exactly does “on-board memory mode” work? How does it know when to switch to user profile 2 when i shut off my PC?

    I think the settings in Ghub will take priority over those in the mouse memory, when your PC is on the Ghub settings will be used. However when you turn the PC off the onboard memory in the mouse will be used as there’s now nothing to override it anymore. Hence why you need to change the settings there as well.

      Ok, can i please get a step by step on how to fix that? I have made 2 profiles now, 1 with light and 1 without. then what? do i leave “on-board memory mode” ON? Do I have to do more than this? Thanks

        This is what I did:
        After setting up the default profile (with lighting) I created a second profile with disabled lighting. After that I saved this “Off profile” to the 1st slot of my mouse (a G703). I didn’t save the default profile, only the off profile! This way the mouse doesn’t have the option to use the default profile while your PC is off. After this I disabled the on-board memory. That’s all. Now if your PC is on the mouse will use the default profile but when you shut it down the mouse will go dark as it must use the only saved profile, the off profile which hasn’t got lights set with it. 🙂
        I hope this helps.

          Thanks for your explanation, I should have probably included a few more details in my initial blog post.

          I can’t believe how difficult it is to do something that should be so simple!
