+What: /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/als_setting

+Contact: Gabriele Mazzotta <gabriele.mzt@gmail.com>,

+ This file allows to control the automatic keyboard
+ illumination mode on some systems that have an ambient
+ light sensor. Write 1 to this file to enable the auto
+ mode, 0 to disable it.
+What: /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/start_triggers
+Date: December 2014
+KernelVersion: 3.19
+Contact: Gabriele Mazzotta <gabriele.mzt@gmail.com>,
+ Pali Rohár <pali.rohar@gmail.com>
+ This file allows to control the input triggers that
+ turn on the keyboard backlight illumination that is
+ disabled because of inactivity.
+ Read the file to see the triggers available. The ones
+ enabled are preceded by '+', those disabled by '-'.
+ To enable a trigger, write its name preceded by '+' to
+ this file. To disable a trigger, write its name preceded
+ by '-' instead.
+ For example, to enable the keyboard as trigger run:
+ echo +keyboard > /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/start_triggers
+ To disable it:
+ echo -keyboard > /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/start_triggers
+ Note that not all the available triggers can be configured.
+What: /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/stop_timeout
+Date: December 2014
+KernelVersion: 3.19
+Contact: Gabriele Mazzotta <gabriele.mzt@gmail.com>,
+ Pali Rohár <pali.rohar@gmail.com>
+ This file allows to specify the interval after which the
+ keyboard illumination is disabled because of inactivity.
+ The timeouts are expressed in seconds, minutes, hours and
+ days, for which the symbols are 's', 'm', 'h' and 'd'
+ respectively.
+ To configure the timeout, write to this file a value along
+ with any the above units. If no unit is specified, the value
+ is assumed to be expressed in seconds.
+ For example, to set the timeout to 10 minutes run:
+ echo 10m > /sys/class/leds/dell::kbd_backlight/stop_timeout
+ Note that when this file is read, the returned value might be
+ expressed in a different unit than the one used when the timeout
+ was set.
+ Also note that only some timeouts are supported and that
+ some systems might fall back to a specific timeout in case
+ an invalid timeout is written to this file.
