Wireless button light does not turn orange when swithced off..

my PC is HP Pavilion dv6-6c98sa which came with windows 7 home premium but after i recently upgraded it to windows 8 pro, i have noticed that the wireless button light does not turn orange when switched off(airplane mode).... i have installed the wireless button driver which synced the button with windows 8 .. whether in airplane mode or not, the light on the key remains blue.. however, i have seen windows 8 laptops which change to orange when in airplane mode.. how do i get mine working properly? the button functions properly, just the light on it.. pls help..

Please download and install latest HP Wireless Button driver from the following weblink for Windows 8:

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp58501-59000/sp58720.exe

 

It might resolve the color problem.

Re: Wireless button light does not turn orange when swithced off..

It's because the Bluetooth isn't turning off.  I had this problem when I updated from Windows 8 to 8.1...I had to manually update the Ralink Bluetooth driver with this Mediatek Bluetooth Software pack.  It will automatically remove the old driver, and install the new one for you.  You can verify that it is this by going into the Hardware Manager and temporarily disabling the Bluetooth and you'll see the light change and then after enabling it again, you'll see it go back to white.  This has fixed the problem for me, and the wireless, and bluetooth are both functioning properly, and when in airplane mode, the wireless light goes back to amber.
