Genuine question - why do laptop keyboards even have the option for backlights?
My laptop sometimes overheats to the point where touching the keys is painful. Usually, when this happens, I realize I've accidentally pressed the backlight button.
What purpose does it serve? I understand when the keyboard is disconnected from the monitor, but on a laptop usually the keys are bright enough just by reflecting the screen's light.

@kite I usually have my brightness at the lowest on my laptop, in my generally dim room. Backlight is great for someone like me
