Custom RGB pattern gets disabled on lock

Hello, I’m facing the following problem:

I set up custom RGB colors for my Razer mouse. It’s saved in “Chroma Effect 1” title. However, when my Windows gets locked or I lock it manually with win+L, immediately my mouse gets its default spectrum effect. It seems like that service or whatever it is which is responsible for those custom effects gets disabled when Windows gets locked. How can I fix this?

Not possible to bypass this :(

It seems to be thing with the Synapse - how it’s designed.

Oh man, this really sucks. I’m testing another RGB software now called “Signal RGB” and that one works even when Windows is locked. Just problem with that one is that I can’t create or edit effects, like if I want only 2 colors in a rainbow effect instead of many, I can’t do that, while Razer software and my HyperX keyboard software gives me ability to do that. Ugh, seems like it’s not easy to find a perfect software. By the way, HyperX software also keeps custom effect on a lockscreen. It’s only Razer software that gets disabled :(

Dunno what mouse do you have. But there’s another option (at least for some models) - called Dynamic Lighting devices - it’s a built in Windows 11 function (released with 23H2 update) - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/component-guidelines/dynamic-lighting-devices - just don’t look at the supported devices list because it’s obsolete.

Still some mouses requires firmware update to support this function. Additionally you can download the new Synapse: https://www.razer.com/synapse-new which allows to choose between Razer Chroma and Windows Dynamic Lighting

I have Basilisk V3. I’ll check this now. Thanks.

No, it didn’t work well. Chroma window was stuck on a download page and didn’t work. I guess, I’ll go back to stable synapse version and leave the things they are. Thanks anyway.
