I have the same totally annoying problem on my brand new very expensive Acer Aspire 7. No setting option in BIOS v1.19. Sometimes keyboard lights seems to turn off after just couple of seconds. I need to train myself to always press the CTRL firstly to activate the lights without writing, before writing...I had a Thinkpad where Windows 10 interfered with the keyboard lights, turned them on and off according to room brightness, but I can't find that setting on my Acer.

Energy Star7.0, Acer is unable to offer a support path to override or modify
this feature if your model is not eligible for the following BIOS update:
