Touch Cover backlight and battery


Do any one know if having the touch keyboard's backlight option turned on drain the battery in any significant way? It is not that i am having any issue, just curious and lazy to test it myself :)

I use the backlight often when I am on the battery (which is most of the time) and I have not seen any adverse impact on battery life.

I haven't either - it's pretty good about automatically turning on and off, and I doubt the little leds in it draw any significant power.

Really like the Type 2, the keyboard anyway. The touchpad is pretty crap - I bought a Sculpt mouse which works just fine.
