    *I'm a noob to macs. I'm pretty sure this has been asked but a search revealed nothing.*

    In regards to a 2010 13" macbook pro's illuminated keyboard,

    1.) Is there a way you can make the keyboard's backlight become brighter in low light situations?
    2.) Is there a way for the backlit keyboard to turn off in lit rooms and turn on in dark rooms?

    For some reason the backlit keyboard becomes dimmer in low light situations. I'm finding it really irritating. I have a feeling this is the way it is suppose to be so that the keyboard doesn't blind you. Any programs to hack the light sensor?

    Do you not have the keys on your keyboard that are for your backlight? On my 17 it is the f5 and f6 keys just to the right of the 'dashboard' key and to the left of the 'previous track' button those adjust the key backlight brightness just like f1 and f2 keys adjust the screen brightness

    The keys look similar to the icon in my screen shot below


    You can also go into Preferences-keyboard and adjust the low light key brightness settings!


    good luck
