Here goes:

I've been using ubuntu as my primary OS for the last two years, and been very happy with it.

Recently i bought a new lappy, an Asus U80V. First thing i did was rid it of Vista, and install ubuntu. Unfortunately a lot of things didn't work very well. No suspend/hibernate, no digital audio output, no control of brightness e.t.c. So i turned to windows 7 RC for a while.
With the release of 9.10 I'm back, and a lot of things seem to work a lot better.
But still there is no keyboard backlight...
I've done a lot of searching, but hasn't found any answers.
Can anyone help?
