X390 Yoga: automatic illumination of keyboard

Hello guys,


I am new to the forum and now own an X390 yoga with i5.

Coming from a Dell E4200 and Toshiba Portege  R100. All good machines as well as the X390 Yoga is one.


I have one question, My Dell had an automatic illumination of the keyboard.

 The Lenovo X390 Yogas KB obviously needs to be turned on manually everytime. Can't this work on a brightness value lie the Dell?

Re: X390 Yoga: automatic illumination of keyboard

Some ThinkPads have ambient light sensor (ALS) where keyboard backlight and screen brightness are controlled automatically depending on the brightness of the room.  But X390 Yoga doesn't have it.  So the only way to adjust screen brightness or enable/disable keyboard backlight is to do so manually.
