And the answer is: Control Panel > Vaio Control Center > Keyboard and Mouse > Backlit KB If you don't have Vaio Control Center installed on your computer, "it should be available" on the sony vaio website. "Support > Downloads," or something like that.

Thanks for your help. This backlit keyboard was really bothering me as It had become a nuisance feature rather than a helpful one.

A) You talk too fast. B) It's a computer and the morons who design this crap don't care that it doesn't work and C) My light comes on all damned day and stops working at night.

hello, i opened my vaio control center and all it has listed is system information and display.

+Andre Moguel Hey man, did you figure it out? I did. I had to install VAIO Update, its update, Sony Shared Library, Sony Firmware Extension Parser Device Driver, and Hotkey Utilities. You can find them all here. http://esupport.sony.com/LA/p/model-home.pl?mdl=SVF15215CLW&template_id=2&region_id=2&tab=download

Hi Ben, I have Sony VAIO Fit13 Multiflip (SVF13N1X2ES) with Win 8.1 OS. Unfortunately in VAIO Control Center there isn't keyboard options to turn off backlitying of the keyboard and this is very annoying. Would you suggest what ro do in this case?
Ognyan Nikolov (3 years ago)
I asked Sony support center and they confirmed that some of the features of VAIO Control Center are not supported in Windows 8.1. The backlit control is supported in Windows 8.0!

+Ognyan Nikolov same thing to me. cant figure out what to do

There is nonesuch an option in "Input device"
Tuấn Kiệt Hứa (4 years ago)
You can go to VAIO Control Center>Input Device then scroll down a lil bit til you see "keyboard blacklit", choose "do not turn on"

Sony will no longer be making laptops.

I know. That's the sad part. They have very good VAIO products and they want to get rid of it for the tv and mobile business.

After clean installing my vaio s, my backlit keyboard does not light up anymore.. When I permanently turn on the backlight, then it lights up..but when I set it to turn on only when it is dark, it doesn't turn on..I have installed all the drivers from the first post..I have Sony Shared Library and Control Centre..

Woops, found it for Win 8. Maybe people with a different VAIO control center version than the one in the video can use this as well. Go to control panel > input device. The third option there will be keyboard backlight. You can set it on 'always on', 'never on', or 'on when any key is pressed'. Hope this helps!
TaraPls (5 years ago)
Anything for Win 8?
E. Enkhee (5 years ago)
