I have a logitech keyboard, I accidentally pressed Caps Lock often, so I used the app to disable it and same for Windows key, can re-enable in 4 clicks.
That's a cool story.

Except it's a laptop. Getting a new keyboard is not an option here.

Anyway, problem solved, uninstalled the software and my backlight still remains. Thank you for all your help.

Well laptops can use externals, but I see that point, uninstalled and still works? You rebooted since?

And laptop keyboards do get replaced, albeit at a typically higher expense.

sounds like you could have done with a helpful pop up on your screen to let you know caps had been turned on,

That`s what I was getting at by saying, "Who uses cap-locks anyway"

But apparently the OP does all his typing in capitol letters, I WONDER IF HE EVER GETS TOLD TO STOP SHOUTING, oops, sorry had the cap-locks on, my bad.

boohbah, that app was reminding me, which is why I got fed up and disabled it.

In my case, very frequently. Holding down the shift key while typing multiple upper case letters gets old fast!

I can understand the OP's frustration. He's been using a keyboard in a certain way that worked fine for every keyboard up to this one. Retraining an old habit isn't easy for many people. Nor should the OP have to retrain. Even if he only used the caps lock occasionally, that pop up would be extremely annoying, especially since it's really unnecessary.

Yes, I can understand that. The OP is using the Caps Lock to capitalize things when he should be using the shift key. A string of upper case characters is a lot less common than needing a capital letter say, when typing a paper. Seems he got it fixed though, and won't have to learn how to do it correctly.

I could understand if the pop-up message made the PC lose focus on the window or did something crazy, but it's just a pop-up..........if he used the shift key the way he was suppose to, the caps lock key would be used very infrequently.

Ya know, it just really doesn't matter if he is using the caps lock unconventionally. It's not unreasonable for the OP to expect his current computer to behave as previous ones he has used. Sometimes, somethings work better for some people and not for others. Some people use the caps lock key, others don't. If using the caps lock key works for the OP, then there is nothing wrong with doing so.

Well, he had to disable software as a workaround to a problem that shouldn't be a problem. I wonder if he lost any functionality having to do so??

The OP came here looking for a way to turn that specific feature off, AFTER talking to the manufacturer which said there wasn't a way to turn that particular feature off. He acted like he had never used the Shift key before. I simply offered an easy solution.

Sigh! You just don't get it. It may be an easy solution for you but that doesn't mean it was for the OP. Once the OP emphatically stated using the Shift key wasn't an option, it was time to move on to Plan B (Plan 9, whatever).
