    I love the backlit keyboard on my MBP, but it always seems to be on. From how my computer's setup, the backlight is alway on unless i'm under light comparable to being outside. If i'm indoors in a well lit room, the keyboard will light up. Is there a way to modify the way the sensor is working, or an easy way to adjust the settings to my liking?

    I've already used Lab Tick, and that's not what I was looking for...

    You can change the setting for the keyboard illumination under the System Preferences, shutting it off completely if you prefer.
