How would you solve

[tex]x^x = ax[/tex]

for x (where a is any postive constant >1)?

I am trying the Lambert W function but I just can't get it to the right form. I am starting to think that you can't solve this using the Lambert W function. Any help?

edit: Sorry, I really wanted the expression to be x^x = a*x
