MacBook :: Location Of Macbook Keyboard Light Sensor?

Dec 22, 2008

was wondering, where the keyboard light sensor was. It is strange because although my light sensor seems to be working properly, the angle of the screen can cause the sensor to be activated sometimes in indirect lightening situations. I just was wondering where the sensor was.

MacBook Pro :: Light Sensor Turns Up Brightness Of The Backlit Keyboard

Apr 29, 2010

So I've recently purchased the new 13" MBP, and to my understanding, there is a light sensor that turns up the brightness of the backlit keyboard and screen when in dark environments.

However, the problem with my MBP is that when I turn on the lights in my room, the screen brightness and backlit keyboard both turn brighter, and when I turn off the lights, the screen and keyboard grow dimmer, which is exactly the opposite of what is supposed to happen.

MacBook Pro :: Ambient Light Sensor Is Too Sensitive?

May 12, 2010

I've been using my mum's MPB C2D quite a bit, in anticipation of my own i5 arriving, and one thing that gets on my nerves is the ambient light sensor. It seems to be really sensitive, to the point where it will change the screen brightness when there has been no real changes in ambient light. If you move your hand over the sensor at the top of the screen, or even if someone walks past and casts a shadow it can change for a few seconds. Also, just moving the laptop around and the sensor changes the screen.

Obviously this setting can be turned off, but I'd like the feature if it wasn't so sensitive. Other than that, I love the MBP and can't wait for mine!

MacBook Pro :: Ambient Light Sensor Not Working?

May 16, 2010

As of today, I noticed my ambient light sensor doesnt seem to work. I tried disabling and re-enabling it in system preferences, but that hasn't done the trick.

Is there some test I can do to see if it's working or not? I know it worked two days ago, because i took the i7 15" MBP outside and it automatically switched to max brightness. Today I took it outside and the brightness didn't switch at all and I couldn't see the screen it was so dark.

Since the last time it definitely worked, all I've done is install Windows 7 64-bit with Boot Camp and hooked up the MBP to an external 20" monitor with a minidisplay-DVI adapter.

MacBook Pro :: Display Brightness Ambient Light Sensor?

Aug 31, 2009

I thought Apple said that the brightness will go brighter when it's darker, and get dimmer when it's brighter. Why is mine doing the opposite?

MacBook :: Motion Sensor Kills Back Light?

Mar 29, 2010

Here's a new one (for me anyway).

2007 MacBook: 2.16 Ghz, 3GB RAM, Intel GMA etc.

Anyway, all of sudden, any motion I make kills the backlight of the screen. In the right light you can still see things and the computer still works perfectly, just extremely hard to see. Have to do a restart in order to get going again.

MacBook Pro :: Disable Ambient Light Sensor (auto-dimming)?

Apr 28, 2007

I've noticed that the ambient light sensor in the MBP can be somewhat sensitive. Sometimes an action as simple as moving my hands up to the keyboard (from the side) triggers the "auto-dimming" feature of the screen and it slightly reduces the brightness of the screen, then quickly returns. This is rather bothersome.

I've got the option under Keyboard and Mouse "Illuminate keyboard under low-light conditions" unchecked, but the screen still dims if you cover the speakers. I've also got the option under Energy Saver "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before sleep" unchecked as well.

I'm at a loss here. Is there not a way to disable this auto-dim feature? A Google search didn't turn up much of anything. Surely there must be a way...

PowerPC :: G5 - What Does The Ambient Light Sensor Do

Dec 6, 2008

[URL] I went here. I have found out the iMac is a 2nd gen iMac G5. It has an ambient light sensor. I put my hand over it and it doesn't appear to actually do anything.

What is it supposed to do?

Do new ones have it? I have a 20" aluminum one as well, but don't see a sensor.

OS X :: Terminal Command To Disable Ambient Light Sensor?

Sep 16, 2010

My end goal is to create a script that will disable and enable the Ambient Light sensor when I plug and unplug my MacBook Pro from power.

To do this I'm pretty sure I need a terminal command to enable and disable automatic dimming as the ambient light changes.

MacBook :: Illuminate Keyboard When Typing In Low Light ... LED?

Jan 30, 2009

I was just wondering if my backlight was LED. I wonder how much it will dim over the next couple of years and if keeping it turned down will make it's ability to go bright, when needed last longer. I sometimes turn it up all the way to illuminate the keyboard when typing in low light.

MacBook Pro :: Bluetooth Keyboard - Green Light On And Then Off

Apr 3, 2010

I've had my Apple bluetooth keyboard for over a year now, but two days ago I started having some problems with it. Whenever I turn it on, the green light is on for like a second and then it's off, but nothing happens after that (it's supposed to blink a couple times before it connects). I tried changing batteries and everything I could think of, but haven't figured out a way to get it to work again.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Light Works Differently?

Apr 14, 2010

Not sure if I'm going mad - but the keyboard light seems to work different on these new Macbook Pro's..

On the old model I thought the light came on when you pressed a key on the keyboard. But on the new model the light only comes on when you press a key AND you are in a dark room..

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Doesn't Respond - Back Light Still On?

Jan 2, 2011

So a friend spilled some liquids on his new macbook pro 13 5,5.Unibody The keyboard no longer worked, the hd was fried, so he gave it to me and switched to PC's . I replaced the HD, and connected an external keyboard.

Luckily nothing else was effected and it powered up. What I find strange is that the back light still works although NONE of the keys do. The power button and the trackpad still work as well.

I have accepted that I have to purchase a costly top case, but could i not just replace the keys?

MacBook Pro :: Spilt Tea - Right Side Of Keyboard Not Light Up Brightly

Jul 31, 2010

A few days ago I knocked over my tea on my new MacBook Pro. (I bought it less that 2 months ago.) I quickly soaked it up, blew a lot out with compressed air, and turned it upside down to let it dry. When I turned it back on I noticed a few keys were sticking. I did my research and one suggestion said to put a drop of water and/or alcohol on the key and just work with it. I know this may sound stupid, but I felt more comfortable with this than to start trying to remove keys. I dried it again and everything seems to be in working order.

All the keys work, and as far as I can tell the internal is okay (unless the sugar/tea is slowly eating away at it, which just makes me sick to think about). The right side of my keyboard, where my tea was spilt, doesn't light up as bright as the left. Is that because I damaged the light, or the tea stained the keys a different color. Does this mean I'm going to have to remove keys to get it clean anyways? Or should I just count my blessings, ignore it, and never drink near my Mac again?

Software :: Keyboard Backlight Sensor Not Working?

Jun 14, 2010

My Macbook Pro keyboard Backlight is not working properly even in a darkroom.

I need to install a third party software (Lab Tick) to switch on the keyboard light.

I am not able to use F5 and F6 key to adjust the light dimness. I suspect the light sensor is having problem.

However, last night I received an error message, saying that my Mac is having problem, I need to press the Power button to restart the Mac.

After restart, the keyboard backlight is working (without Lab Tick), and I can adjust the light with F5 and F6.

But now,after I made the Macbook sleep and wake up, it's back to abnormal again.
