    Default Asus G73 Illuminated Keyboard - OFF?

    Hi I just got my G73. Maybe Im blind, but I really cant see my illuminated keyboard lol I tried pressing the button (top left, next to the Turbo Boost one) but only lights up/off the blue line of light under my screen.

    Maybe I should wait till its really realy dark?

    Fn + the proper keyboard option (F4 or F5 I think?)

    As you found out one of the functions of the button next to the Turbo button turns the keyboard lighting off. I always found it odd that it would toggle other lighting, but not the keyboard. Like you, when I first received my X1 and had pushed that button, I was like, you're kidding me, it doesn't turn back on the keyboard lighting to the level it was before?

    Now that I have become more familiar with those three buttons, I never use them and wish there was a way to assign three useful functions to them.

    Yeah....left one gets me a beer, the middle one walks the dog, and the right one mutes the wife.

    Looking at the pictograms on those buttons, I can see the relationship. The left button looks like a cup that has a slash through it, meaning cup empty. The middle button has a gauge, that's the speed in which the dog walks. The right button has a big 'S' and that one apparently means "Shut-up".

    Sorry, couldn't help myself.

    hehe oops did I say all that out loud?

    All are scenarios I'd much more likely have a need for in the heat of battle than lights that "can be turned off instantly for stealth"

    Yeah, but stealth has it's advantages, too. No one can see you to ask you for a beer. The dog can't find you to bring the leash. And, after putting the wife on mute, you'll need all the stealth you can get.
