"The keyboard CAN be set to stay on all the time. On your Qosmio, just go to: >Start >Toshiba >Utilities >HWSetup >Illumination >then under "Keyboard Backlight," click the radio button "FN" then check the box "On." After you reboot, you'll be able to turn the keyboard on and off by using the "FN" + "Z" keys."
Can anyone tell me how to turn on the backlit keyboard for a Toshiba X500, I've tried fn z but no luck. I've check the Bios and HWsetup and the illumantion was set to on but does not state a keyboard command. I've attempted to google and look and the manual but still haven't found an answers. thanks for any help
