Thinkpad X270 turn off LCD shortcut?

#1 Post by JoePGM » Tue Nov 14, 2017 6:18 pm

Just purhcased the Thinkpad X270 and really loves it! However I can't find the shortcut key to turn off LCD display. Some previous Thinkpad user suggestion like FN+F3 , FN+F7 didn't work in this laptop. I know there are some 3rd party EXE tools could turn the screen off however I don't want to rely on them because of security.

Anyone know the magic key combo for X270?

Thanks!

Lenovo again, remove that nice features on the new machines, but there's still hope.

Download nircmd:

Then place a shortcut of the executable with this command:
C:\nircmd\nircmd.exe cmdwait 1000 monitor off

you can assign a shortcut hotkey, I chose F7, now just press the desired key and the LCD goes off!
