Keyboard lights flashing

My keyboard’s backlights keep flashing. I don’t know what triggered it. They are ignoring the backlight settings completely too. (When I use the FN+backlight buttons, I get the visual feedback of them being changed, but their behaviour does not change)

It started happening after leaving the laptop on lock screen unnattended (logged in, browser and discord open) for a few minutes. I suppose it will fix itself if I restart the computer, but I would rather know what triggers this and how to fix it without having to reboot every time it does.

Thanks in advance :sparkles:
