I just received my thinkpad P71 yesterday and I'm using it right now. Immediately off the bat, I removed the Hard drive in favor of a far better one. I'm curious to know does the keyboard require any special drivers for the backlit keyboard to work? I assume that it works similiarly to the W541 Backlit keyboard in which I hit Fn + Space Bar, it should work right? Well, currently it is not working. Keep in mind that this is on a Fresh install of Windows, does it need drivers to work? Thanks!

Keyboard backlit does not require any special driver to work.
However, I recommend to install Hotkey Feature integration to show on screen display indicators.

My P71's backlight works, however, it turns itself off seemingly at random intervals.

I'm sorry I have not responded to this thread in a while. I took my P71 to an authorized Lenovo repair place and it was because a connection under the keyboard was loose (after adding more RAM). Everything is working fine.
