Thank you for replying,
I appreciate your time and efforts,
I understand you have followed the steps suggested in the previous post and still having the issue, and you would like to know if there is any notification or an indication of toggle between the modes.
On the keyboard, there would be an option to enable/disable backlight using the combination of FN and F11/F12 Key. The button image has a box with 3 bars and light rays extending outward. Here you can toggle between the keys.
Press and hold the Fn key and the press the dedicated key couple of times which would help to increase and decrease the brightness of the backlit keyboard.
I hope this helps. Let me know how it goes for further assistance.
Keep me posted,
