    Anyone's backlight seem less illuminating? I've had my Air since May and this past week it seems much less brighter than usual.

    Nothing I can do about it now. I'm in China for a while.

    I believe it is fiber optics or LED so no it will not lose glow.

    Everything's fine here. Their lights as normal as ever.

    Even better since 10.5.5, where they corrected a bug that wouldn't make the keys lit if you protect your machine with a password after sleep -- only after you entered your password.

    Yeah there's a store in Beijing. I'm in Shenzhen. It's just everything is an ordeal here to get anything done. I can wait until I get home.

    I'll try cleaning the keys, although I wipe them regularly when I use the anti dust cloth on the screen.
