The backlit keyboard on my 2013 MBA seems to be acting up.
When I awake it from sleep, it usually does not come on. However, occasionally it does.
Any idea on what may be the issue and solution here? I've tried messing with the keyboard and energy saver options to no success. Also tried a system restart.
EDIT: Should I reset the SMC? Are there any risks/reasons not to do this?

If you want to manually adjust it, use the buttons at the back of the keyboard! There is no way that I know of to make sure it is always on - but when there is plenty of light in the romm you are in, surely you dont need it!

Open Preferences >> Keyboard >> Uncheck ' Adjust Keyboard brightness in low light '
Also, set the ' Turn off when the computer is not used for : ' slider to ' Never '
That should take care of the issue, if there is one to begin with
