L380 Yoga - keep KB backlight on?

Hey all. I'm sorry if this is a duplicate post for this forum.

 

Is there a way to keep the keyboard backlight on the L380Y from turning off on its own? I have to turn it back on after a period of inactivity, and I would rather just leave it on (at the very least while plugged in to power). Is there a way to do this?

 

Thanks!

I'm sorry to inform you that there is not a Lenovo-supported way to do this.  I have seen some threads on reddit with links to a 3rd-party tool that can do it.  Note that this isn't unique to L380, every ThinkPad with backlit keyboard behaves same way.

That's very disappointing. I think I will avoid Thinkpads in the future then. I recently returned my L380Y for other issues. This is a pretty basic function that HP, Dell, Asus, MSI, Samsung, and others have figured out. I love the Thinkpad keyboard. I hate this lack of customization.

 

Thanks.
