Yes, exactly the case that I have. Keyboard backlight is too bright on my
laptop, and when watching a video in a dark room I have to turn it off
manually.

Splitting out the keyboard backlight into a separate action would also enable
us to dim the keyboard while keeping the screen on, like when a video player
forces the screen on, you probably still want the keyboard backlight to turn
off as to not be distracting.

FWIW I've measured 1-2 watts of power from the backlight (depending on its
brightness) which does make a difference when on battery, so I think this does
make sense.

I think that it's good to have an ability to control keyboard backlight
auto-dimming independently from screen auto-dimming. Not even for power saving
purposes. Some applications prevent screen dimming, like watching video. But at
the same time you don't need keyboard backlight when you watch a video, it
could even be distracting in a dark environment. I think this commit
https://invent.kde.org/arrowdodger/powerdevil/-/commit/5ec53c84a59357782c34cda7ca7dde8938491cbb
might be solving this, but it seems no merge request was ever opened for it.

Yes, the purpose is saving energy. I always just assumed it was using a lot of
power, but now that you mention it, I'm not so sure anymore.
I will report back when I find concrete data.

^^ Yes, why? If this is for energy savings, can you quantify the actual
savings? My sense is that keyboard backlights are very small users of
energy--but I could be wrong! However I'd like to see some data if energy
savings is the reason.

Yes, that does work. However, I think this request if about the keyboard
backlight turning off independently of the screen after a much shorter time.

When you configure the screen to dim (or turn off) after a certain time of
inactivity the keyboard backlight will turn off with it, unless the keyboard
brightness controls don't work at which point we cannot do anything about it.

I agree. Especially from a perspective of saving power, this is very important.
I don't know if KDE is the right place to solve this, but, considering it is
able to control the brightness, I figured it might be worth a try.
