    got a new MacBook Pro recently and just now noticing something pretty odd...

    if iTunes is playing and I hit the play/pause key (F8) the entire keyboard will go dark, but only if I'm pausing. it doesn't do it when I'm hitting the button to resume a song, only when I'm using it to pause one. the backlight sometimes takes minutes to come back on, at random, and sometimes it doesn't and I just have to turn it back on myself.

    update: I've found that it's not just the shortcut keys — the backlighting turns off even when I go into iTunes and press the spacebar to pause or just press the actual button in iTunes. pretty odd, haha.

    any ideas?

    strange.. :) i have the same problem..
    I got my macbook pro also in the last 2 weeks..
    But i was thnking if this error is because of a program called iSpazz (

    Did you install this??

    Because i installed this, then the program was not working..then i uninstalled..then this strange thing started to happen i think..
    when playing pause or space, lights are going for some seconds..
