@Kipchik Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to off timeout keyboard illumination.


Did you know the backlit settings change from model to mode? which means, your device may have just always on or off setting as well.

That said, if you've had auto-turn off on your backlit, you may change the settings using the below steps:


When the backlight is enabled using the key on the keyboard and the backlight stays on for only a few seconds, the backlight timeout setting might need to be configured in the BIOS.


If there is not a setting for the backlight timing in the BIOS, this behavior may not be supported on the notebook. Check product support documentation to verify.

Your BIOS version and screens might vary.

  1. Restart the computer and immediately press the F10 repeatedly until the BIOS opens.

  2. Navigate to the Advanced tab. Use the arrow keys to navigate in the BIOS.

    Use the down arrow key to highlight Built-in Device Options, and then press Enter.

  3. Use the down arrow key in the Built-in Device Options to select Backlit keyboard timeout.

  4. Press the spacebar to open the keyboard backlight settings. Select the desired setting for timeout of the backlighting.

    Selecting Never makes the backlight stay on constantly unless you turn it off with the function key on the keyboard. If it remains on, your battery power could drain quickly.
