    Hey guys
    First post, I've been reading these forums for quite some time and it helped me through many bumps along the way since joining the surface family.

    I just got my surface laptop, and it doesnt seem to save last setting used for the keyboard Backlight.

    Everytime i restart or turn on the laptop, back keys turn on, and i have to manually turn them off.

    Do you guys experience this ? Is there a way i can save last setting, or set default setting to off and ill turn them on myself when i need to ?

    no one ? can some one who has a surface laptop check ?
    I noticed if I shut down and start right away, it actually stays off (or whatever setting I had it on before shutting off)

    but if left off for like 10 minutes or more, key lights ALWAYS come on, regardless of last setting

    I can confirm this behaviour on my Surface Laptop.

    Yep, mine does the same, and always on the highest brightness. It's a bit annoying and means my battery will be draining faster than it should (keyboard backlights do take a fair amount of power). I imagine it's just a driver/firmware thing and an update soon will fix it. I mgiht submit some feed back to Microsoft about it.

    Same problem. No help in surface app either. For that matter, the app seems almost useless period.
