I know questions about keyboard backlights have already been asked a million times, and I apologize, but I cannot seem to find any fix to my problem.

Whenever my computer sits idle for about 30+ seconds my keyboard lights seem to come back on when I wake it from the screen dim, currently I run this script everytime I notice my backlights on:

#!/bin/bash
sudo chmod 777 /sys/class/leds/samsung::kbd_backlight/brightness
echo 0 | tee -a /sys/class/leds/samsung::kbd_backlight/brightness

Lately it's been getting very tedious, and I would really enjoy finding a permanent solution for keeping my keyboard lights off.
