The backlight on my keyboard shuts off after a few seconds of inactivity. It will turn back on when you grope for keys in the dark and then shut off again. Super annoying!!! How can I have them on anytime my laptop is up and running or at least extend the delay time before they cut off?

Without having the exact model number it's hard to look up the electronic user's manual, but those are available here:




If your machine has a backlit keyboard all of the controls for that should be discussed in the user's manual.  If they're not there it may be a hard setting that the user cannot tweak.
