How to make my laptop's F12 key stay orange even if it connected to WiFi or even if WiFi is on.

Pavilion 15-g207ax
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have got into a trouble where my laptop's keyboard automatically stops working as soon as I hit the WiFi (both from F12 and windows network menu). What I found out was that my keyboard stops working as soon as F12's color change to white (from orange), this change happen because of WiFi turning on and off. (During the boot and upon start/logon screen, the F12 stays white for a moment even if WiFi is off which makes the keyboard non functional at that moment. )
The only workaround I have found is keeping the WiFi turned off which makes the F12 key orange. I want a way to use wifi without turning the F12 key white. Is there a way to do so ?

The LED color responds to the state of the WiFi -- so there is no way to FORCE it to stay any particular color

 

If your WiFi is dropping, that is a connection problem, not an LED color problem.

I am sorry sir but I think you failed to understand what my problem is. My problem isn't with WiFi. It's the keyboard which stops working as soon as the F12 key turns white.

Sorry misunderstood, but the answer is no because while you might be able to find a way to disconnect the LED, it's the action triggering the LED, not the LED itself, that is disabling the keyboard -- and you confirmed that by disabling the WiFi.
