    Those are the keyboard backlight brightness keys. Try them in the dark.

    new penryn MBP only!
    (previous generation has a different keyboard layout)

    F1 and F2 adjust screen brightness
    F5 and F6 adjust the Keyboard backlight brightness

    to use F5 and F6, use your MBP at night with all your lights turned off.
