Sign [Q] How do I turn COMPLETELY off the HW keys?

Alright, I'm starting to get mad, this little bug that is on almost every goddamn ROM, is pissing the f' out of me. Ok here we go, I go to Settings> Buttons > Backlight // Disabled. It runs fine for like 20 minutes until I get a notification, this will make the HW key backlight go ON and never OFF again, it is on AOSPA, and CYANOGEN, i thing CARBON is now fixed but come on. So my question is:

IS THERE ANY FILE OR DAMN THING I CAN EDIT TO COMPLETELY (PERMANENTLY) SHUT THE HW-KEY BACKLIGHT OFF?

It doesn't disable them permanently, I edited the script to change "brightness" to "max_brightness" but I don't know enough about permissions. It didn't work whatsoever. Thanks anyway, I just flashed PAC so I can turn them completely off there because of the "Display & Lights" settings there.

of course they are disabled completely. I use the script couple of weeks and it works great.
You have to flash it again after each ROM-update for sure...
