If Planet is checking in now and then, I was wondering how difficult it is to set the keyboard backlighting to activate itself when a key is touched, rather than a simple on-off.

The lighting itself is fantastic, and I very much appreciate the different levels of said lighting.

I have a MS Surface Pro6 and its keyboard backlighting is activated by a key press and I'm curious to see if that convenience/battery-saving can easily be conveyed to the Cosmo.

Most likely as my BB KEY2 with Android 8 also supports activating the keyboard backlighting with the press of a key. So if they can do it, so can Planet, as it's the same OS support.

Yes, now that I think about it, my Blackberry Priv lit up the keyboard with a key press. And that was only Android Marshmallow.

I posted a request in their bug reporting form that I hope PC follows...

Why not have an option to have the keyboard backlighting automagically
turn on/off on the basis of ambient light?

As it is, it's a good challenge to deal with the Cosmo, trying to do the
two-handed key combo to turn on the keyboard backlight when you step outside
at night.

:/

We'll see.

Thx
