    I'm not sure why this is a problem if you can still see it, but it's probably because while it's turned on most of the power is going towards running the computer. When it's off this power isn't on and maybe more power can be used for lighting up the lights? Just a shot in the dark, probably a stupid answer

    is it really affect each other? cause i think it doesn't require that much power.. plus I have asked all my friends that who use macbook proand they also didn't know what the real problem..

    is there any other opinions?

    That's probably not the answer. I was just saying something that could be possible. How much dimmer is the light when the computer is on than when it isn't?
