What model of Logitech Illuminated Keyboard. Both my wired  Y-UY95 LIK
seems to work correctly with the 3.6.1 kernel. The keyboard stays lit
all the time.

The wireless one I have at anotehr place I can test tomorrow as it has
the "capacitive" reaction to light up when touched and goes out after
a bit when not.
