Question kboard question with slackware 14 on a sony vaio vpcf126fm


hey guys, i have a sony vaio vpcf126fm, and I installed slackware current 64 09-25-2013

i have a couple of questions i can't find in a search.
my keyboard is lighted, and has a sensor so the keyboard lights up when it gets dark... my kboard will only stay lit for a couple of seconds in light or dark.. i'd like to keep the keyboard lit at all times... can't find a config for it.

in KDE kboard settings, what kboard profile should i select from the list? i am using generic 101 because that seems the default...

kind regards

According to this http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=88350
the sony-laptop kernel module can be given options to achieve your backlight result.
You do this by creating a sony-laptop.conf file in /etc/modprobe.d/
From '/sbin/modinfo sony-laptop'
Code:
parm:           kbd_backlight:set this to 0 to disable keyboard backlight, 1 to enable it (default: 0) (int)
parm:           kbd_backlight_timeout:set this to 0 to set the default 10 seconds timeout, 1 for 30 seconds, 2 for 60 seconds and 3 to disable timeout (default: 0) (int)
