Default touch key light duration always on when set to 1.5 seconds

I think the title pretty much sums it up but I've switched it to always off and then back to 1.5 seconds and it's currently staying on all the time unless I power off the device and or shut off the screen and also of course if I turn it to always off. I could turn into always off but I don't want to put a bandaid on the situation I want to fix the root of the problem any suggestions I'm running stock rooted with nova launcher thank you in advance.
