    - How can i turn off keyboard illumination in windows? There's no such option in neither keyboard preferences nor the BootCamp panel. I tried to turn down the keyboard illumination to the lowest possible via the keys but the lowest still illuminates the keyboard.

    - It seems that my user account created under Windows does not have full Administrator privileges. I'm trying to get rid of a file and it tells me i don't have Administrator rights to do that. When i go into properties of the file the checkboxes are greyed out and i can't activate administrator rights under my user-name.
    How do i gain proper and full Administrator rights? I tried to log out and log in as Administrator but the only user to choose from is the the only one user i created when installed Windows.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    if somebody has information regarding the keyboard backlight in windows (specifically XP) not turning off, please share, because I've had the same exact problem with mine. I've seen multiple people complain about this problem, so you're not alone, and its something that I haven't seen with anything before the early 2008 mbp models.

    The keyboard backlight has ALWAYS been a problem. It never turns off completely. This is true for XP, Vista, and 7. Apple has yet to step up to the plate and provide drivers that don't appear to be written overnight.
