External keyboard backlight stays on after I poweroff Framework laptop


I’ve now used the Framework laptop for about a week and I’m very happy with it. I use it both as a a laptop and connected to my external monitor, mouse and keyboard. However, after I’ve powered off the laptop, the backlight of my external keyboard stays on, as long as the laptop is connected to the charger. When I disconnect the charger, after a little while the keyboard backlight goes off. If I don’t disconnect the charger, it stays on. As an experiment, I waited for about half an hour and all this time the backlight stayed on. To be sure, this was not the case with a similar setup on my previous laptop.

Does anyone know what might be causing it? It may be relevant info that I’m running Arch linux.

The laptop is configured to continue giving power to devices while is plugged and off

Thanks for your reply. I did not know this. Is this a configurable option that I can turn off, for example in the BIOS? Or is this just something that is?
