Keyboard Backlight Will Not Turn Off

I've owned my Y2P for the last 3 or 4 months now.  Keyboard backlight always turned off/on with Fn Spacebar just fine... until today.  Fn+Space just gets the keyboard backlight to flash off for a second, and then back on.

 

Also I checked and all of the other Fn keys work.  Also the Caps Lock light doesn't come on either.

 

And if that's not all, My power indicator light is amber even when fully charged.  (solid, not blinking)

One more try before I try something drastic like resetting to factory settings.  Bump.

Re: Keyboard Backlight Will Not Turn Off

So here's the solution.  Hold the power button down for about 30 seconds.  From my old school knowledge of things, this should have reset the cmos battery and therefore whatever controller turned lights on and off.  I guess...

 

You do not, need to reset your computer to factory settings, as I did just prior to trying my old school trick. :-(
