Hi@fatr0ck, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Request you to follow the below-troubleshooting steps form the Keyboard back light issue 


    1. To open the Proximity Sensor Control software click Start, All Programs, HP Proximity Sensor, HP and select HP Proximity Sensor. 

    2. Click the Sensitivity (Range) button to select either Maximum or Minimum range. Selecting Maximum will cause the keyboard to illuminate more often than the Minimum setting as the proximity sensor will be more sensitive. 

    3. Click the Delay until off button and select one of the following delay times: 

      1. 10 Second(s) 

      2. 1 Minute(s) 

      3. 3 Minute(s) 

    4. The time you select is the time it takes for the keyboard illumination to turn off when not in use. 

    5. Click Apply. 

    6. Click OK to return to the Windows desktop.
