I have a P205, and did not know of the backlight feature for the last year! Following the directions, after going to toshiba/utilities/hw set up, I do not have the two rows of titles at the top, only one, and illumiation is not one of them. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks much!! Tricia_S

If applicable to your unit, review:
The backlight that illuminates the keys on the computer's keyboard is off by default. To turn it on, press and hold the Fn key, and then tap the Z key. Press this same Fn + Z hotkey combination to turn it off again.
You can change the settings for the keyboard backlight in Toshiba Hardware Setup: Click the Windows Start button, then click All Programs, Toshiba, Utilities, and HWSetup.
In the HWSetup app, click the Illumination tab. The Illumination properties page will appear, as shown below.
The available options are:

It may be that you miss one step or something because the settings work, here is two ways to do it:
2. Click: start / Click: all programs / click: TOSHIBA / click: Utilities / click: HWSetup then follow the steps of option 1 from the illumination tap.
Make sure your laptop have the keyboard backlight because that is not standard option in all Toshiba computers.
This was done in Widows 7
Note: also you can customize the function of the side buttons here from the Toshiba assist window.

If you wish to change the timer settings for the keyboard back lite, reboot your machine and press the f2 key go to the power management tab scroll down and change the timer from 1 sec to what ever you wish. Save changes and reboot.
