17 R5, left side macro keys, power button

I got my Alienware 17R5 on January 30th! Windows was updated along with BIOS! Last week it came to my attention that the Left side Macro Keys & Alienhead power button lights do not switch off when i choose dark mode in the Alienware command center!

Yesterday, i created a theme in AlienFX which got saved but, after the unit was restarted from hibernate & when i chose to change the theme, the theme created by me was no longer present & the default blue theme automatically came on!

I do remember seeing some notifications after the updates that apparently mentioned some error about Alienware command center! Upon reviewing Event Viewer I found this error!

  <Provider Name="Application Error" />
  <EventID Qualifiers="0">1000</EventID>
  <TimeCreated SystemTime="2019-02-10T08:57:05.955420500Z" />
  <Security />
- <EventData>
  <Data>C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\DellInc.AlienwareCommandCenter_5.2.24.0_x64__htrsf667h5kn2\AWCC.exe</Data>

Would appreciate if someone knows how to resolve this issue!
