    The base aluminum macbook doesn't do keyboard illumination, only the 2.4Ghz model does. Keyboard illumination control is in the keyboard prefpane on the bottom of the first tab.

    Mine is fn+f5/f6. If you don't have the little light symbol on your keyboard then you don't have the feature; also you may need to turn it on through the preferences window.
