Auto turn off backlight keyboard T430



is it possible to set the keyboard illumintaion that it turns off when I dont use the keyboard for X minutes?

The illumination is really annoying, when watching something. And turning it off manually is really bothering.


Dell Vostro has it, is it also possible on thinkpads?

Re: Auto turn off backlight keyboard T430



Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


I would like to inform you that as of now, there is no such settings available to turn off the backlit keyboard after a certain period of inactivity. The backlight automatically turns completely off only when the screen goes off or when the machine goes to sleep. I personally think that what you have suggested would be an incredibly useful one and our engineers will take it as a great suggestion to implement the same.


Best regards,
