MacBook Pro :: Backlit Keyboard - Some Keys Brighter?

Jul 27, 2009

I was recently using my backlit keyboard of pretty much the first time and I realized that middle right side of the keyboard is slightly dimmer that the other side. I can still see the keys and its not a huge difference but its enough to be noticeable and somewhat distracting.

MacBook Air :: Lack Of Backlit Keyboard - Keys Dark Gray

Dec 27, 2010

I love my 11.6" Air but the lack of a backlit keyboard is killing me. And why on earth are the freaking letters on the keys dark grey? If Apple released a new Air next month with an i3 or i5 ULV or Sandy Bridge ULV and a backlit keyboard I would feel compelled upgrade even at ridiculous cost to myself. Is there a real reason why there are no backlit keys on the Air? Is Apple just forcing me to upgrade to the next model when released?

Just not sure how it went down. They are in a clean room. Looking at the Air. Seems like someone would have said, "thing would really benefit with a backlit kayboard" and that somebody else would have said "yeah, we are Apple, leaders in design" and then Jobs would chime in, "Damn straight. Make it so." Where did it breakdown?

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Backlight Brighter On Left Side Compared To Right

Jul 17, 2009

I have a 13" MBP. I just realised that when I use my macbook in the dark the keyboard light is brighter on the left side compared to the right side. When I look at my keyboard any key on the left side of the 5, T, G and B keys are brighter than those on the left. It is more evident when I have my moshi clearguard on.

Hardware :: New Macbook: Backlit Keyboard?

Nov 10, 2008

I am considering whether or not I will get the backlit keyboard model or not. I want to save $300, but I also want to be able to see the keys (within reason).

I like my current PBG4's backlit keyboard, and sometimes find it necessary, however, it does have low contrast silver keys with white lettering. Since the Macbooks have black keys with white lettering, and therefore more contrast, I am wondering if this will improve visibility in low light conditions enough so I won't have to have the backlight.

Do any of you have the new MacBook sans backlit keyboard, and if so what are your impressions of being able to see the keys in a dim (not dark) room?

Mac :: MacBook Top Case Of The 2.4 GHz - Backlit Keyboard?

Jul 12, 2009

I went to the apple store the other day to see if the top case of my (late 2008) MacBook's top case could be replaced (due to some sort of discoloration in the metal). Anyway, they are replacing it free of charge, but i was just wondering if i could tell them to use the top case of the 2.4 GHz MacBook (I have the 2.0 GHz, doesn't include backlit keyboard). I realllllllly want this backlit keyboard, and a replacement by myself is totally out of the question. Please help, i really need a shiny keyboard

MacBook Pro :: Longevity Of Backlit Keyboard?

May 14, 2010

I would believe having your backlit keyboard on max would kill the life span of the led lights? curious to know if anyone has it on max majority of the time to have the laptop look fancier rather then those who use the backlit accordingly to prolong its life time.

But in the cases for those who do set the backlit keyboard on max for a long time (speaking of months, even years) any issues with it? any led lights or keys breaking or stopped working?

MacBook Pro :: Backlit Keyboard Not Working On It?

Feb 23, 2012

I have a MBP on OS X version 10.6.8, the mid-2009 model. The problem: I can't get my keyboard to light up. When I press on the F5 and F6 button I see the image of the keyboard light pop up on the screen but it has a line through it telling me I can't do it. These feature worked a couple days ago, and I didn't change any settings since then. I have tried everything. I made sure the settings were right and reset them. I have tried to update my software which told me I was up to date. I have put my laptop in a pitch black room. I have covered the sensors. I have done an SMC reset as well as a PRAM reset. None of these things worked. I did download the LabTick app, which then I was able to light up my keyboard but I don't want to have to use a 3rd party application. I would like to have my keyboard adjust automatically. I have uninstalled LabTick.

MacBook :: Enabling F5 / F6 For On Non-backlit-keyboard AlBooks

Jan 15, 2009

System: Silver Macbook
OS X Ver.: Leopard
Backlit Keyboard?: No

Essentially my problem is that I'm unable to set new shortcuts for the F5 and F6 keys for my Silver Macbook. Since it doesn't have a backlit keyboard, there's no function for F5 and F6. I'd like to make them go to shortcuts such as "Show Desktop" and "Spaces", both of which are supported under the "Keyboard Shortcuts" Tab of "Keyboard & Mouse". So, I have them configured to match up to F5 and F6, but they do not activate the corresponding function when pressed.

I have the "Use function keys as standard function keys" checkmark unset:I apologize for the fairly small problem...I just really want to free up those two keys! I appreciate any response.

MacBook Air :: No Backlit Keyboard - Power Button Eliminated

Oct 20, 2010

Note the F keys on the 11 inch, and the new power button. What's missing? Also note the lack of the word 'backlit' in the descriptions for either machine. Both machines have the same keyboard, just to eliminate the power button in the name of aesthetics.

MacBook Air :: Using Backlit Keyboard Swap From Previous Generation?

Oct 21, 2010

I'm excited about the re-vamped MacBook Air, and am considering a 13" model. Much to my dismay, no illuminated keyboard anymore! I understand keeping certain options only for the Pro to encourage upgrading, but this one may be a deal-breaker.

Since the keys are the same style, would it be possible to take off all the keys, swap out the board underneath and replace it all with the backlit counterparts from the older MacBook Air? What all would be involved?

MacBook :: Added New Feature To Backlit Keyboard - Customization?

Jul 13, 2009

I could be wrong, but I did not hear anything about Apple revising the Backlit Keyboard on their new MBPs that came out early June. Was this not made public for a reason or just small upgrade that needed no advertising? Or am I totally living on another planet and everyone knew about this? I checked one out for the first time today and.... now, there is a light sensor(next to the cam) to automatically turn the Backlit Keyboard off during daylight when you don't need it - to save battery life. it makes sense, but personally I want the option to always have it off to save battery, no matter the conditions around. I just found a reason to not want a 13" MBP over my uni MB New MBPs Users (June 09 or later) - is there customization with this new feature?

MacBook Pro :: Backlit Keyboard Doesn't Come Back On When Typing

Nov 30, 2014

I have a Macbook Pro 13in. It is not a retina. I just bought it from apple.  Anyway it works fine I just noticed one thing about the keyboard and I'm sort of new to macs.

OK so the backlight on the keyboard times out after 5 sec (that's what I have it set to) the thing is the light will come back on after it times out when you move the mouse or touch the trackpad, but not if you start typing.  I noticed that shift, fn, control, alt/options, and Fkeys will bring it back.  The peculiar thing though is that while I'm typing, that will keep the light on.  Soon as i stop for 5 sec won't just turn on if I start typing again, gotta hit one of those keys or touch the pad. 

I could just set the timer longer, but idk seems like a minor flaw.  Unfortunately I can kind of see that, however there does seem to be hotkeys.  Just as long as one could customize them, maybe add the entire keyboard.

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.
