Samsung TV Remote No. BN59-00849A

I cannot disable the "nitelight" on my remote. I have not seen this Model number referenced on this site and am going through batteries frequently.
The remote Model No. is BN59-00849A and the tv Model No. is UN46B8500XFXZA. Can you help ?

Sadly not in the way you may expect.

I have a lot of electronics background and would dive in and remove the backlight LEDs if this had to be done. Or I'd go get some universal replacement remote.

Sensing ligth issue

In the top right hand corner of the remote just above the TV button, the remote control has a sensor if that sensor is blocked by dust or dirt try to clean it..

This is an information took it from the user's manual:

SENSING WINDOW: Senses the brightness of the room and determines whether to turn on the backlight of the remote control button or not. The Backlight enables you to find the remote buttons more easily in a dark room
