OK, I have an Alienware M14X and the keyboard backlight is always on and I can't turn it off... Google didn't me much. I want to turn it off because it's disturbing sometimes

I uninstalled Windows OS from my laptop so I can't really disable it from there

This appears to be accurate: Your answer would be much improved if you would explain how to accomplish this without Windows. – Elder Geek Jul 13 '14 at 1:32

For GNU-Linux systems you can use alienware-kbl. With that program you can control the lights of alienware computers.
