Is there a way to set the keyboard to go to sleep when the computer it is hooked up to goes to sleep, so that the LEDs are not constantly on?

That's going to be more dependent on your OS than it is the keyboard. My Mac has always done this, so I suspect the easier way to get this to work would be look into it at the OS level...I suspect.. 😉

Good question. Since mine just "sorta works" (mind you, it will turn on randomly, "by itself". I think there's something with the camera on my iMac that detects motion and puts power to USB or maybe just ghosts?) so it probably has something to do with USB power??? If you're using a powered USB hub, that might contribute to the board always being "on". Come back with any info you find. Several people are curious about this. (I usually obsess about stuff like this, but for some reason I haven't given this much thought)

Putting classic Apple keycaps on the CTRL
Back in 2003, Apple released the Apple Wireless Keyboard: (Not to be confused with later keyboards of the same name that look like laptop keyboards.) The keyboard still works with an ancient MacBook Pro, but it won't pair with anything from the 2010s. That's too bad, because I think it looks pretty nice. So I decided to see if I could bring its essence into the 2020s by transplanting the keycaps to my Drop CTRL keyboard. Here on the left is a regular MX style keycap, and to the right one from the AWK2003. Not so different. Until we turn them over: However, the AWK2003 keycap will fit on a Cherry MX style switch, especially a Kailh box switch: But the fit is too loose. However, we can fix that with some teflon tape. Three layers seems to work well: And there it is: the Drop CTRL keyboard with 2003 Apple Wireless Keyboard keycaps: The keycap profile is a bit different, especially on the bottom row, as you...

Drop F1 thru F12 behaving like Mac
Could someone post or direct me to a post of an example of configuring the Drop CTRL function keys to behave like those on a Mac keyboard? For example, instead of using Fn+PgUp to increase the volume, I would like to simply press F12. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Concerning Drop + Invyr Holy Panda Switches.
Are people not incorrect saying the stem have the legs "broken off" when in fact the stem was just an incomplete casting? When taking the switch apart to lube, there are no pieces of the "broken" stem legs inside the housing. So how did the stem legs become "broken?"

High pitched whine on CTRL?
Recently I've noticed a high pitched whine coming from my Drop CTRL if I have the LEDs turned on at all. It's quiet but clearly noticeable and is driving me crazy. I had assumed it was a USB issue so I tried both ports on the CTRL but no change. I tried different ports on my PC but no change. I was using a Custom cable so went and tried the USB cable that came with the keyboard but the whine was still there. Anyone else have this issue?
