Hi everyone I have this laptop for a few days and I am still testing it, I noticed that the backlit keyboard once turned on does not turn off by itself when the pc is inactive or it only turns off the screen and stays on so, there is a way to Do this? I checked in the bios but did not find an option concerning the keyboard.
Thanks

In my model I don't think there is no option to enable automatic shutdown, or at least in the bios there is not, I hope it will be added with the next updates or through the Omen Gaming Hub program

Did you attempt to shut off the keyboard back light manually? I believe that it’s FN+F10 to adjust brightness/turn it off. When using the laptops keyboard do you notice any issues with it?

What I mean is that the backlit keyboard of my notebook does not turn off by itself when it is turned on after a while I do not use the PC, yet from the official documentation of my notebook it says that it should turn off automatically after 30 seconds of inactivity, instead it remains always on and I can turn it on or off.

On my laptop there is actually a button that toggles the keyboard light on and off. I don't know how it is with other laptops but on my keyboard it is the f5 key.

would simply go with the fact that as your keyboard is still powered, it just kept its previous state. I don't think the OS has a routine on shutdown ..

and turns off by itself after about 30 seconds of inactivity?

Hi Niko87,

I have an HP Pavilion, and I use my backlit keyboard pretty much on a daily basis, and I have realized that the keyboard will stay on on my laptop when the laptop falls asleep, and also mine will turn itself off when i shut it down, but it doesn't really bother me to leave it on, because it does not consume a whole lot of power, and when I leave it plugged ion all night it will still have pretty much as much battery power as it did before, (It probably drained the battery by 1 or 2 percent) so your laptop should be fine if you leave it on, I have had my laptop for about 2 years now, I use the backlit keyboard all the time, I don't think it is anything to be worried about.

If it is a problem, you can always just leave it turned off, or you can turn it off after using it.

 

Hope this helped! 🙂

So there are no solutions at the moment, unless HP will make an update in the Omen Gaming Hub app to better manage the keyboard and its shutdown, that would be well welcome, otherwise it's okay so it's not a drama. Thanks everyone for the support! 🙂
