    Hey all,

    So I have this keyboard that I purchased recently (CM STORM Devastator). It has blue backlighting, which is cool...

    but the key which enables it is the scroll lock key (for whatever idiotic reason). So far, in Mac OSX, I haven't been able to have it work, even if I disable the screen-brightness-down function normally assigned to that key. Is there some program I can use that will help with this?

    I have tried Karabiner before, but I'm not sure this will work. Several functions on it simply don't work because it seems to mostly be for MacBook keyboards.

    Help appreciate - thanks.

    Very funny.

    I didn't know that this existed, but I ended up finding an application made specifically for this. All it does is open, run, and then close: instant backlighting for several types of keyboards. However, it's either on or off. I can't toggle it.
