I just got of the phone from a Apple Europe PR representative. Wow... simply wow. I emailed Steve, because I got fed up with the at least 12 hours long CHKDSK of the C: drive when booting windows and about the always on backlit keyboard in windows... The PR agent told me that Apple is working on the backlit issue and it will not be present in the future macbooks and that Apple will issue a solution in a few months about current macbooks. This struck me as Apple just recently released BC 3.1 and why isn't it fixed by now? About the CHKDSK she scheduled a phone call with an Apple IT specialist tomorrow morning... Though I doubt that he or she will help as this forum has provided a possible solution.
