LOL no no my bad meant mountain lion.
you see i tested out this thing, try using your phones LED light or a flash light an point it straight to the camera. the brightness on display will go high and the keyboard backlight will turn off. pull out your phone and the keys light up and the display goes back to normal.
im testing this on dark room and as soon as turn on my room lights, boom display adjusts while keyboard stays the same (lit up).
the only way to adjust the keyboards backlight is to actually show it extreme light at the camera. i dont know what else to do.

I don't even know what's going on lol I put backlit and monitor brightness to max, turned off the light, display brightness stays same at 100% and backlit brightness decreased to 50%....
I think backlit does not automatically shut off when you enable backlit.

for my old mid-2010 macbook pro backlit automatically turned off. (as far as I remember)
