    is there any way to set the backlight of the keyboard to come on at higher brightness levels? right now, mine will only come on in almost near darkness, and I never use my computer in those lighting conditions. if you turn any sort of light on in the room, even very dim ones, its enough to turn the backlighting off.

    is there any mod out there that can let me change the threshold for when the backlight comes on/off?

    Quick question, does the backlight come on when running Windows through bootcamp? And can you control it from Windows?

    From the bootcamp documentation the back light does not work in Windows. Now if there is any way to make it work some how, I have no idea.

    The linked program runs in OS X and is set to open at login (OS X only program). There isn't anything for MBP users would like to use their backlight in Windows yet, but maybe soemthing's in the works.

    Neat program though.
