Answer

The registry does not have the value set to enable this feature.
A registry file needs to be created with the desired settings.
  1. Paste the following into Notepad:
    • [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\backlight]
      "BacklightOnTrigger"=dword:00000001
      "BacklightOnTap"=dword:00000001
      "BatteryTimeout"=dword:0000003c
      "OnOff"=dword:00000001
      "ACBacklightOnTap"=dword:00000001
      "ACTimeout"=dword:00000000
      "BacklightOnKeyboard"=dword:00000000
      "ACBacklightOnKeyboard"=dword:00000000
      "BacklightOnTouch"=dword:00000000
      "ACBacklightOnTouch"=dword:00000000
      "ACBacklightOnTrigger"=dword:00000000
      "BatteryTimeoutUnchecked"=dword:00000000
      "ACTimeoutUnchecked"=dword:0000003c
      "Brightness"=dword:00000004
  2. Save the file as modifiedbacklight.reg
  3. Copy modifiedbacklight.reg into the application folder on the MC90xx.
  4. Perform a hard reset on the MC90xx.
