In the simplest, Razer Synapse 3 interface states, next to the settings for lighting, "Quick effects are presets that can besaved to a device's profile and synced with other supported Razer Chroma-enabled devices".
So far, according to personal experience, I can testify that the BlackWidow Elite (2020.08) RGB keyboard, which allows 4 on-board memory profiles, and the Basilisk V2 (2021.11) Wired RGB mouse, which allows 4 on-board memory profiles and 1 hybrid profile (for latest used profile), still do not save Lighting Quick Effects (E.g. single static colour) to any on-board memory by Razer Synapse 3 of various versions that are released during 2020.08-2021.11 (up to version 3.6.1130.111217).
Surprisingly oddly, the DeathAdder Essential (2019.02) non-RGB mouse, which allows none on-board memory profiles, does maintain a predetermined brightness level with the static effect for the green lighting after Razer Synapse 3 and all its relevant services have been fully exited (verified in Windows Task Manager and Services).
I shall spare any further lengthy criticism here, for the problem has been evidently obvious for years with countless users. Just hoping more resonating users would second the situation and the second the request, so that Razer can resolve responsibly accordingly (i.e. do what you say, or just do not say what you do not do) sooner than later.

Synapse is required to manage it.
I know, and it's ridiculous. The devices shouldn't be dependant on software remaining open to a switch between these profile settings. What is the point of having the onboard memory if it can't even save full profiles.
If they don't change this functionality, this will be my last RGB based device purchased from Razer considering their competitors offer solutions that WILL remember lighting profiles.
Dunno, it's Razer's decision.
I also would have avility to save Chroma settings into onboard memory (at least the pre-defined ones) - even for the cost of less profiles to be saved into memory.
It's an extremely poor decision for the end-user. Forcing gamers to run additional software in the background to use their own lighting profiles is just very bad design out of principle. I emphatically urge Razer to consider lighting profiles to be saved to onboard memory in a future firmware update for their devices.
Hope this helps someone..
So sad that I don't have a Mac...
When can Razer fix this stupid issue? Apparently this is not a hardware limitation.
Hey, thanks for sharing the workaround! Any suggestion where to find this "Razer MacOs.app"? Thanks!
Btw, if any potential fellow customer is wondering, also not all profile settings can be saved to the on-board memory of these products. For example, key combinations that opens particular software or do specific tasks may not be saved... Details are indicated by Razer Synapse settings.
Meanwhile, what can actually be saved for lighting - oh, there are actually two lighting settings that can be saved to the on-board memory, seriously - are brightness level and light-off (they might be the same, but since mouse does not have brightness buttons, perhaps it can be said as "two" settings)! Cool...
P.s. Happy to see 20 people and 100% voted for the "Yes - as a clearly stated key feature, the opposite would be confusing, false, and irresponsible" choice in the poll.
Thanks for sharing and helping each other,

I'm having almost the same problem just I don't seem to have a memory icon
But it does not save the profile, it should be in the autorun. It uses less than 3 MB of RAM.
