I just installed a new SSD in my Z500 Touch and did a Windows 8 clean install. Everything seems to be working fine except the Fn+Space feature to turn on and off the back lit keyboard. The keyboard is now constantly lit up and i can't seem to turn it off. It will go on and off if I close the lid but I can't manually turn it off. Any suggestions?

Thank you for using Lenovo Community Forums!
You might need to check the Lenovo Energy Management as this software that controls the Fn+space and other function keys.
This is the version for your computer,
Try resetting your BIOS to default settings as well.
Hope this helps,

I already had the correct version of Energy Management installed but I tried again and it didn't help. I also tried resetting bios but it didn't help either. Is there somewhere in the Energy Management program that I can see if there is a problem?

I am pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. Here is something else that seems odd. When I go into BIOS settings, any thing I select that needs a Fn + key works ( F10, F5, F6...etc.) So I know it's working just not in Windows 8. It worked when I first recieved the computer though. Any help guys?
