View Full Version : PowerBook Lighted Keyboard

I want to know if the keyboard stays lighted if you leave the machine on for long periods of time.
I just got a new processor and motherboard for my Pismo last year and I run it all 24/7; hardly ever shut it down, except when transporting it since the sleep sensor broke when they worked on it. I don't see any problems with this since upgrading to OS X.

So, does the keyboard stay lighted while screen effects are playing on the 17 in.?

That's my next machine, regardless.:D

On my new 15" Powerbook there is a check box for "Illuminate keyboard in low light conditions" Under that is a "Turn off when keyboard is not used for:" slider, going from 5 seconds all the way up to never.
