Alienware M17 Keyboard backlight

My m17 has recently arrived and everything works, runs crysis and Prototype.

But I think when I was playing with stealthmode and the command center, somewhere along the line I turned off the keyboard backlight, all the other lights work fine but this one I cant figure out how to turn back on.

Please, I really want the lights back on my keyboard so I can see what im mashing >.
