    If you still need it, i found a fix, you have to shut down hcontrol.exe in steam to be able to change the file.

    So is there anyway we can remap the shadowplay/steambuttons to something else or just completely disable them?

    Hey all, I made a slightly different version as the one in the original post opens steam to games but won't do anything afterwards, this one instead does that but uses the nav command to also reopen the window to the games library which I find much better.

    Neither of the two versions of HControl works with me. I am using win 8.1 on G751JT. Any suggestions?
    NVM I didn't read what to do with the exe got it 10x

    Changed my keyboard backlight settings, was a bit annoying turning off so fast so I set it to 10 minutes.
    Thank you for this thread. =)

    Honestly I would prefer to set the BACKLIGHT timeout so that it NEVER times out. Always on. Does anyone know how to do this?

    On a related note, does anyone know how to disable the touchpad when a mouse is plugged in? I used to be able to do this on other ASUS models but haven't figured out how to do it on the G751.

    Look at my thread HERE
    it ain't perfect: sometime fn+F3/F4/F7/F9 doesn't works while all my other remaps works well ( fn+down/right/left ) - BUT I have already upload a creative fix for that.

    Even WITHOUT my solution ( aka AsusNbKeys ) you can still have the ability to COMPLETELY CHANGE the "STEAM" fn key !
    You do that by Hex editing of HContol.exe and inserting additional exe inside "c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam" root folder - the same level as steam.exe sits.
    I think that method can work as well for links and cmd batch files - but i didn't tried that - I put my choosen exe inside steam's folder.
    after that open HEX editor ( I use Notepad++ with HEX editor plugin ) and look for:
    %s\Steam.exe "steam://open/bigpicture"
    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	before.jpg 
Views:	828 
Size:	18.0 KB 
ID:	47947
    Change that string, so only the "%s\" is left, and the rest is 0 in HEX value ( look at the picture ).
    then, after the %s\write the filename+extention of your own file ( in my case its an exe called "WCSwitcher" which I wrote to toggle the camera on/off - instead of going to the device manager and do that manually )
    Click image for larger version.

    After you've made changes - save the Hcontrol.exe and replace the current working inside the ATK package folder ( C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ATK Package\ATK Hotkey )
    Hope this helps you.

    P.SHere is an EXE for switching the g751GT camera on/off
    (Download Here:WCSwitcher.zip)
    It will work ONLY for those laptops having camera with ID *PID_B414&MI_00* ( the * means whatever )
    As you can see, I mapped the STEAM button to this exe (WCSwitcher.exe) by manipulation the Hcontrol.exe with Hex edit - as I wrote above.
    How to install: Download the Zip and Extractall files into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam"
    devcon.exe Should be under "C:\windows\SysWOW64".
    Explanation for each file:
    notifu.exe - is a program that enables launching balloon popups in the systray - so you can see the status of the camera switch.
    I took it from HERE.
    devcon.exe - MS developer kit tool - It gives the ability to control devices through CMD.
    WCSwitcher.exe is my own batch script (converted to exe using freeware "Advanced BAT to EXE Converter") that switches the camera on/off as follows:
    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    CLS
    @ECHO OFF
    setLocal EnableDelayedExpansion
    
    REM SET Name
    REM SET Status
    SET Device=*PID_B414^&MI_00*
    
    set /a n=0
    For /F "tokens=* delims=" %%a in ('devcon status "@%Device%"') DO (
    	set /a n+=1
    	set v!n!=%%a
    )
    set v >nul
    REM echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For /F "tokens=2-5 delims= " %%N in ("%v2%") DO (
    	SET Name=%%N %%O %%P %%Q
    )
    
    For /F "tokens=3 delims= " %%S in ("%v3%") DO (
    	SET Status=%%S
    )
    REM echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    REM echo Device Named "%Name%" CURRENT Status is %Status%
    IF %Status% EQU running. (
    	devcon disable "@%Device%" >nul
    	echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    	echo Device "%Name%" is now DISABLED
    	echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    	"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\notifu.exe" /p "Camera Switcher" /m "%Name%, is now DISABLED" /d 5
    )
    IF %Status% EQU disabled. (
    	devcon enable "@%Device%" >nul
    	echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    	echo Device "%Name%" is now ENABLED
    	echo ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    	"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\notifu.exe" /p "Camera Switcher" /m "%Name%, is now ENABLED" /d 5
    )

    If you set the TurnOffKeybdLight in registry to something like 999999 it should do the trick. Download Asus Smart Gesture, it has the setting you are looking for

    Mostly you are currect with your answer - the TurnOffKeybdLight registry value is in HEX not decimal... so 999999 HEX = 10066329 Decimal = 10066329 Seconds which are 116.508 Days....
    so input FFFFFF will be, theoretical - "NEVER" :-)
