Yoga 900 - How do I turn on the keyboard backlight?


How do I turn on the keyboard backlight on the Yoga 900?


If the machine is equipped with a backlit keyboard, press and hold down the Fn key (1) and then tap the spacebar (2). The keyboard backlight cycles with repeated taps as follows: off > bright > dim > off.

Just some construction feedback - the backlight quality on the Yoga 900 is terrible - it was MUCH better on the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro - it might have something to do with the edges of the keys on the Yoga 2 Pro being white....

I have the yoga 900 and by pressing the Fn key then the space bar you can alter the brightness.

Brilliant - it worked

Any idea how to keep the backlight permanently on? It now shuts off after like 10 seconds (to save battery i guess), that's kind off annoying when you are working in a dim environment and have to switch between papers and your laptop.
