Acer Nitro AN515-42 : Keyboard backlight time out setting

With the last firmware update keyboard backlight can be set to either  always on or timeout of  20secs  which is LOW and doesn't always serve the purpose  .
  •  I want to be able to customize the timeout to any interval 20s to 10 mins .  Its rather odd I don't find an option to set this  anywhere. And being a gaming laptop I should be able to set this in one of the Acer apps i.e. Acer control center / Nitrosense instead of going to the BIOS every time .
  • Keyboard backlight should be activateable  by touchpad  movement . It quite irritiating esp  in the dark that I have to tap the KB everytime  to get the backlight on  .
These shouldn't be overtly complex  features to implement as the basic capability exists ( on /20 seconds) .Hope  some one from Acer is reading this . These would improve the usability of laptop significantly

    Well, I noticed your idea. But I don't count for much. Maybe some ACER bigwig will notice it now. :)   Jack E/NJ

    I also liked the idea when you said that backlit keyboard should light up when you move the mouse!

    I agree egydiocoelho. I like that idea too! Act just like sleep mode for the LCD backlight. A sleep mode for the KB backlight.  Jack E/NJ

    @JackE It would be interesting if the Acer engineers added this function to all models that have the Backlit Keyboard!
