X270 Keyboard Backlight?

I have a new X270, Type 20HNCTO and cannot figure how to activate the keyboard backlight.  Normally the "FN" key pressed with the spacebar turns it on on previous X models.

 

Is there a special sequence or perhaps the X270 does not have a backlight on the Keyboard?

Re: X270 Keyboard Backlight?

On CTO(configure to order) models a backlit keyboard was an option.  Did you buy that option?

It is an option.  Those with a keyboard backlight have a light-pointing-up icon on the left side of the space bar.  Fn plus space toggles the backlight.

It appears to be an option, one that I did not know was optional.

 

What is the FRU/Part Number of the keyboard with the backlight?

Thanks, I did not know it was a option since it came standard on my previous X240.
