    Keyboard back-lighting will not turn off - I press the f5 key and it will only let me turn it down to no-bars, however the led lights are still on. How can I turn them off completely and keep them from turning on automatically?

    Have you taken a look at the Boot Camp Control Panel?

    The thread title guy strikes again:
    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG]button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.
    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle,since that question may have been asked several times?
    from the forum rules:
    Minor Problems
    3. Thread titles.

    Use thread titles that indicate the subject of the thread, not generic titles such as "Need help". Moderators may change thread titles that have no specifics, usually by adding something more specific in parentheses.

    Unfortunately, you'll never have complete control of the backlight in Windows like you do in OS X. You can try to update your Boot Camp drivers to 3.1 but you'll still have problems. From my experience, 3.1 drivers will allow you to completely turn off the backlight but it will randomly turn on/off by itself with no change in ambient lighting. There are some rumors out there that Apple is working on backlighting but I'm not holding my breath, it took them while to finally get the trackpad problem fixed.
