How to Disable the Backlight Timeout on GU501GM (NO ATK IN REGEDIT)

Level 7
In the registry editor there was no ATK folder for me. Instead the "Turnoffkeybdlight" file was located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e97d-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0016\Settings
The stock setting is 3c on Hexadecimal (60 decimal) which is for one minute. After I would watch a video the keyboard backlight would just shut off and I would have to restart the Aura service every single time. After changing it from 3c on Hexidecimal to 0 Decimal my backlight always remains on now. Just figured this would be a nice FYI since apparently there is no ATK folder on this laptop (At least not on mine specifically).

EDIT: Upon further testing this doesn't work anymore, any ideas on how to make it stop turning off?
