Re: How to keep keyboard backlight on on Inspiron 15 7000

Press F2 while the system is booting in order to enter the BIOS Setup, and somewhere in there you should see a section for Keyboard Illumination that will allow you to customize brightness and the timeout value.  However, keeping the backlight permanently on (assuming that's even an option) will reduce your battery life and may be a distraction if you're trying to watch a movie in the dark or something.  On my laptop, I allow the backlight to power off after I think 20 seconds, and if I need to wake it back up, I do so by pressing something like the Left Ctrl key since it's easy to find by feel (very lower left corner of the keyboard) and there are very few applications where pressing that key by itself triggers any action.
