Newbie question -- just got my 551 and I love it, but I can't figure out the backlighting. The description points out how great the keyboard backlighting is, but I can't figure out how to turn it on! Thanks for your help.

Never mind. I figured it out. Here's part of the problem: in the "user's manual," on the page that describes the function keys, it describes every function key except F3 and F4, which control the keyboard backlight. They are literally not in the list. This is very very frustrating -- why can't there be a manual that actually gives you the information you need?

I had the same, couldnt figure out the light and you also gotta download the supported driver for it :()

Hello, I have a question : backlight for a short moment during the boot and then does not work until I open the windows session. fn+F3-F4 won't work until the session is open.
Meaning, I need external light to enter properly my windows session password before being able to use the backlights fonction !
Do you have the same problem ?
thank you,
