Acer Aspire V5 | Touch Backlit Keyboard

Hi guys,

 

Just got this outstanding Touch Note/Ultrabook and I Love It! Smiley Happy

...

One thing, how can I timeout the Backlit Keyboard to turn off by itself after a certain time (like a screen timeout)?

 

Thanks!

There is not a timer for the backlight, only the hotkeys that you are already using, given your previous post.

 

It may be possible that someone has developed one, but we do not have any information regarding that.

How do I activate the keyboard backlight? I tried Fn + F9, but it did not. Please help.

Thanks, but I noticed when using battery power the keyboeard only lights up when being used and when plugged in the keyboard is always backlit.

Where are the settings to change this?

Are you sure you have the model with the backlit keyboard?

There is one without it.

I just found out that this model doesn't have a backlit keyboard. That saddened me. Thanks anyway.

Could someone please list which model has the backlit keyboard and which does not?  I am considering purchase of the 122P-0637.  But only if there is a backlit keyboard.  Thanks.

I really really hope there is a way to set the keyboard light to OFF during each startup.

Better yet, let the user change the defaults or allow the laptop to memorize your last selection.
