    No those are the ones for my (old) m15x because I can only test on this platform. It can be that these are different on the m17x.

    So here's my next test request, no I'm not dead yet ;-). I've been busy the past days, but I found some time today to complete my version of the "alienfx editor"

    It is tested and should be fully working for the area-51 m15x without a alienfx keyboard. For the m17x I need some people to find out for me what the different power states are. Simply toy around with them set different colors / effects. Change the powerstate of your laptop and watch what happens. I know of the following power states:

    Standby on battery
    Standby on ac power
    charching battery
    running on ac power
    running on battery

    If you found out what one or multiple states are post it please here.

    Why should you use this and not the CC? Because you can set a different effect for each power state which is not possible in the CC. For example I set my laptop to blink red when in standby on battery so I don't forget it is on standby. If it is in standby on ac power it simply glows green.
    Further it might be possible for the m17x to set different colors for the power button and the power button eyes. But for that to work I have to do more testing, meaning I need more testers. But for now the power states are the most important thing.

    How to use it?
    From the dropdown in the top left you can select the power state you want to change. If you click on the "+" you can add a led effect. If you click on a existing led effect you can change or delete it.
    Under Menu "File" you can save and load settings. If you click on the apply button in the bottom right everything gets written to the device.

    Power state 2 = Runnin on AC power
    Power state 4 = Standby On battery
    Power state 5 = Running on battery
    Power state 6 = standby On AC power

    Charging battery - could not tell which one. Looked like a mix of blue and green which were states 4 and 6 for me.

    Set one power state you don't know to red blinking and everything else to black. So if you find the correct state you can see it right away and have not to identify it by color.

    Edit:
    I just have updated the app. It now supports the area-51 m15x with alienfx keyboard too.

    You've got a "Löschen" in it, I think it means remove?
