G751 Keyboard Backlighting Timeout

Howdy all! I've had my G751JT for a while now and am loving it. One thing that I haven't been able to find an answer to yet is how to disable the timeout on the keyboard backlighting. My searches return all kinds of info for the same thing for older modes like the G750, but most of those have to do with reverting to a specific version of the ATK drivers, but that version is really old and that doesn't seem like the right answer. Is there some way to force the keyboard backlighting to stay on without activity?

Thanks!

Hello Folks,

on my G751JY i changed the following value in the registry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ASUS\ATK Package\TurnOffKeybdLight

to hex 1e13380 (dec 31536000) which equals to 1 year of backlighting. For me it's enough time. 😉

Kind regards

I can confirm that using the 1.0.00.28 drivers solves the issue and keeps the lights permanently on.

And are all the other keys working with those drivers? Like the steam, shadowplay and rog one ?

Hi, can you send us the link to the driver?.. Thanks.. cant find it on this site only V.30 and above none of the 28 😞

Its on the G750 site, under utilities.

Can someone find the Steam and Shadowplay key registry locations?

You might want to start a new thread for better visibility.

On topic: thanks Ary-Aman! This was bugging me. Not worth the minuscule battery savings to me to have it pop on/off. 🙂

Don't, Don't and again DON'T !

READ THE STICKY THREAD: "G751 How to change the Steam, Shadowplay buttons and Backlight timeout settings"
and if you still can't understand THE VERY DETAILED GUIDE - NOTE that you CAN NOT remap "shadowplay", "Steam" button through registry changes... you can only partially effect steam to open itself in a non-full screen .
Nonetheless, there is a way to re-config Steam, shadowplay and ANY FN combo in the keyboard !
