    So, I found a solution for Clevo's bloated CC (all processes/services) and still be able to change LEDs on both keyboard & lid. Meaning, no custom fan profiles, just “Auto” or “Manual” fan control (FN+1), including CC overclocking, the latter is a terrible idea anyway.

    1) For starters, uninstall current CCC -> reboot.

    2) Download Control_Center_v5.0001.1.88.7z & Hotkey.7z.

    3) Install CCC v5.0001.1.88, then reboot when prompted.

    4) Open CCC, set "Performance" mode and fans to "Auto".
    Open Flexikey, set custom colors, first lid and then keyboard, hitting "save" each time.
    Exit CCC.

    5) Copy Hotkey folder to the root of C:\ drive.

    6) Run hotkey_settings.bat as admin.

    7) Open task scheduler. Import included Hotkey.xml task. (FCU/RS3 12 seconds 'delayed start' or manually set 15-20 sec depending on resource load).

    8) Pin GameFeet_start.exe shortcut to the taskbar and/or start menu to change colors anytime (delayed start).

    9) Perform a BIOS reset to clear CCC's fan settings. Otherwise, fans will be stuck at 80% (FN+1).


    Ruling out common issues: #1, #2


    I disabled LED 'breathing' lid effect by choosing black instead.

    It works perfectly. Thank you for the effort you put into it. Great mod, especially for those who do not have @Prema EC mods (default white keyboard lighting and static lid LEDs) and have to look at the tacky bright blue keyboard and breathing green lid without CCC, but otherwise would prefer to not have CCC installed. All of the worthless bloatware part of CCC is gone.

    If anyone finds it useful and want to say thank you, they can use this link for Brother @j95.

    So, has anyone else tried this? It works much better than the stock Clevo Control Center. If the only reason you install CCC is for LED control, this mod is exactly what you need.

    Finally can people get rid of most part of the unwanted Bloat. Sofware should be developed in this way. Aka you pick what you want. Good job, bro @j95 +rep:)

    Thanks man. FCU/RS3 new startup behavior many times overrides delayed tasks (5~10 sec) depending on resource load (applications must comply with M$ startup performance conditions in order to receive certification). Hence 13 sec delay.

    Update: hotkey task.
