Any way to get the physical keyboard to stay on as long as the screen itself?

If you set the screen to auto adjust the brightness the keyboard will stay lit when it's dark.

I have mine set to auto brightness, and the keyboard backlights fade in and out randomly independent of the screen. It drives me nuts. I'll be in a darkish room, like dusk darkness. The screen will be a constant brightness, but the keyboard will go to black, then after 4 or 5 seconds come back, then a few seconds later go to black, etc. It's really annoying!
