To preserve power, there’s an on/off switch along with a button that can show if the keyboard can generate power

from the current lighting conditions or not. Press the lighting condition button and if the current lights are

strong enough to power your keyboard, you’ll see a green light appear next to a smiley face picture. If the

lighting conditions are too weak to power your keyboard, a red light will appear next to a frowning face picture.
