Dell Latitude Keyboard light

The backlit keys interface seems to be broken, so you need to mask the controlling service: systemctl mask systemd-backlight@leds\:dell\:\:kbd_backlight.service
then go to BIOS and and change the keyboard led timeout from 10s to 5s for AC Power and Battery mode - "For some reason if the kbd_backlight service is not masked, it somehow forces the bios led timeout back to 10s, and then the keyboard led always remains lit."
