MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Backlight With ITunes Media Keys Options?

Nov 16, 2009

iTunes is playing and I hit the play/pause key (F8) the entire keyboard will go dark, but only if I'm pausing. it doesn't do it when I'm hitting the button to resume a song, only when I'm using it to pause one. the backlight sometimes takes minutes to come back on, at random, and sometimes it doesn't and I just have to turn it back on myself.

Hardware :: Enhancing Media Keys For ITunes

Sep 30, 2008

I used an extension to control iTunes from within the game. It worked much as the media keys do now, with one (great) additional feature: the name of the song you unpaused or skipped to appeared briefly on the screen, Quicksilver style.

I'm loving the media keys but I really miss this feature. Has anyone heard of a plugin that accomplishes this? If not, does anyone know if it's possible or where a starting point for writing such a plugin is?

MacBook Pro :: Media Keys No Longer Work?

Jun 4, 2014

The media keys on my MacBook Pro (retina, 13-inch, late 2013, OS X 10.9.3) don't work anymore with iTunes. All other function keys work. All other function keys continue to work when "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" is selected in System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard, but F7, F8, and F9 still do not do anything. I have not found a way to map them either.

MacBook Pro :: Any Way To Turn On / Off Keyboard Backlight

May 30, 2010

In regards to a 2010 13" macbook pro's illuminated keyboard.

1.) Is there a way you can make the keyboard's backlight become brighter in low light situations?
2.) Is there a way for the backlit keyboard to turn off in lit rooms and turn on in dark rooms?

For some reason the backlit keyboard becomes dimmer in low light situations. I'm finding it really irritating. I have a feeling this is the way it is suppose to be so that the keyboard doesn't blind you. Any programs to hack the light sensor?

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Backlight Will Not Turn On?

Apr 5, 2012

I was surfing the web when my keyboard backlight started to fade on and offat somewhat regular intervals. After about a mintue or two of this, the backlight just went off all together. Now, when I press the F5 or F6 key to brighten or dim the keyboard, the keyboard backlight does not respond. The usual screen pop-up that shows how bright or dim the keys are no longer increases or decreases but shows the symbol of O with a slash through (like the no smoking symbol).

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Work With Keyboard Backlight

Dec 9, 2010

My keyboard backlight isn't working... whenever I try to turn it up it gives a circle with a line through it. I have read that there is an ambient light sensor that turns off the keyboard backlight when it is too bright, however that has NEVER happened before and I have used it in direct sunlight and the backlight still obviously works. It's not even bright right now but it won't work. This is very frustrating, there should be no sensor that turns it off it should be the brightness I tell it to be.

MacBook Pro :: Can Adjust The Keyboard Backlight Sensitivity

Aug 23, 2009

Just got a new MBP 15" AG this week and was wondering if you can adjust the sensitivity of the keyboard backlight. It seems to come on even in a fairly well lit room and I mainly only need it in a completely dark room. So I find myself hitting the backlight keys to turn it off and then whenever it wakes from sleep goes back to full bright. Didn't find anything in the keyboard preferences and found a program called Lab Tick which will take care of the level on wake.

MacBook Pro :: I7 15" Unable To Fix Backlight Keyboard

Apr 16, 2010

it only illuminates in bright settings. if its dark, it wont illuminate. seems backwards to me, why is it doing this? i dont think it was last night when i first got it.

first macbook pro had a blemish on it. now this one the keyboard isnt backlighting correctly.

just read to put my hand over the webcam and it seemed to kick it back into gear. but then it dies and only takes bright settings to illuminate.

edit: maybe its hitting the sensor (some light from the window at a weird area) in a darker room and it works fine i think.
