When I need it on and it isn't I just put my finger over the led indicator and the keyboard lights right up. I am guessing that is where the light sensor is located. Try that and see if it helps out.

I haven't seen anywhere in the options where you can have the keyboard light set to on all of the time.

or you can just turn the automatic sensor off, and the keypad will always be lit, as opposed to turning itself off to conserve battery life. this way you can avoid d.loading unecessary 3rd party apps.
