powerbooks strange buttons

Can someone help me on what might be the second use of the F8, F9, F10 buttons. I can see an icon in each one that looks like the brightness function but it isnt, what is it?

Those adjust the brightness of the backlit keyboard. Next time you're in a dark room, try pushing them to adjust how bright the keyboard letters glow.
