    How to turn off display on lenovo notebook and to make sure it wont turn on again after smallest vibration of my usb mouse ? :c

    turning off "Allow this device to wake computer" on device manager/ mouse properties just doesn't work.

    Cant believe such a notebooks as lenovos are, and one have such a childish difficulties with them.

    Couldn't find solution anywhere on the internet.

    thanks

    Well one way is to switch the LCD display off with Fn-F7. You will need to do Fn-F7 twice to get back to the LCD display only mode.

    Or you could go to the screensaver and put "Blank".

    (Does this turn it off, or is it still on but just blanks it?)

    First of all, ALL computers will have the display turn back on at the slightest movement of the mouse, so it's not just a Lenovo problem. Secondly, that setting in Device Manager is for when the notebook is sleeping, not just having the monitor turned off.

    I haven't tried this myself, but it appears to be very useful: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd2.html

    Bananaman@ fn + f7 doesnt turn off display for me for some reason

    zephyrus@ no it doesnt turn off display either, just puts it blank as u said.

    kltye@ 1. that is untrue, u can simply turn off display on some notebooks and have a rest. then u can turn it back on just by using same combination of keys....
    2. that is likely second untrue, as far as im aware it should wake pc from any kind of sleep mode (ie sleep, hibernate, display off etc)

    Can you just press Fn+F4 and put it into sleep mode? Then in order to resume, just press the Fn key.

    I wants to have just display turned off, nothing else.

    Well, I don't know of any notebook computers that can allow you to turn off the monitor and not have it turn on with the slightest movement of the mouse since the LCD isn't a separate piece of hardware with it's own switch; it's hardwired with the rest of the laptop.

    Is this a ThinkPad?

    Either your Thinkpad Hotkey drivers are not installed correctly, or you are not using a ThinkPad! Go here to find your Hotkey drivers.

    Says who a Lenovo must be a ThinkPad? :p

    My IdeaPad is Fn+F2 instead of Fn+F7. ;)

    naab, check your manual for the Fn combination keys...

    I just tried, I think this is what you're looking for, using the Fn combination key to turn off LCD, mouse movement won't turn it back on.
