'In the morning' means tomorrow. Possibly tomorrow morning, but not necessarily.

I have always understood "in the morning" to mean specifically tomorrow morning, and the dictionaries I have looked at agree with this. (The old phrase "on the morrow", however, could mean any time the following day.)

It kept me going.

What is the grammatical function of 'going' in the above please?

It is a present participle, the complement of the direct object "me".

My idea is that "that night" is saying when it happened. Therefore "that night" is acting as an adverb of time.
"Late" modifies or qualifies "that night", so technically it is an adverb. It also says when it happened.

Yes, I agree.

You are right that, in many sentences, "late that night" would be a noun (night) with an adjective (late) and an article/determiner (that).

Can you please give an example of "late that night" (rather than "that late night") used like a noun? Do you mean something like "Late that night was a bad time to come"? (Like "Early on Saturday would be convenient".)

Is 'lets you to turn off' correct?

Or should it be 'let you turn off'?

It should be 'lets you turn off'.
