Solved!

ZBook keyboard Backlight to stay on

HP Recommended
zbook 17
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi all,

I have a HP Zook 17 with the keyboard backlighting.

Fantastci machine that I use for work with CAD software.

I'd like to know whether its possible to alter the keyboard backlight so that they will stay ON alll the time instead of turning off after 10-15 seconds ?

 

Any ideas ?

Many thanks.

Reboot and start tapping Esc  or  F10 and enter the Bios.

 

Click on ADVANCED then  Built-in Device Options.

 

Scroll down to Backlit Keyboard Timeout.

 

Click on NEVER.

 

From what I can see this BIOS option is only available on the ZBook 17 G2.

I got it. Unfortunately ZBook 17 G1 does not have such a function.  ZBook G2, G3 and G4 have this feature. If we need to add this feature for 17 G1, we need to make a business escalation.
