Is this a bad joke? I recently bought an Acer AN515-42 for my son, only to hear him complain about the fact that he can't get things done on that laptop in a dark room because the keyboard's light keeps turning off 30 seconds after the last stroke. There is no option anywhere, to disable this, not in Device manager, nor in power management. I'm pretty sure this prolongs the battery's life by no more than 10 minutes per charge. On the other hand, it's so annoying, that it shortens one's lifespan by at least 20 years.
I own an ASUS G75 and the keyboard light can be turned off manually if desired, but it never turns off by itself.
Please, does anybody have a solution?
