Under the System Preferences, open the Keyboard and Mouse preferences. There is an option to "illuminate the keyboard in low light conditions" make sure this is not checked.

I'm not quite sure what you're trying to say, but you're not able to change your keyboard backlighting unless it's dark. Your computer can TELL.

There are three buttons on your keyboard that control the illumination settings (F8, F9, F10). F8 enables or disables illumination. F9 decreases the amount of illumination. F10 increases the amount of illumination. F9 and F10 only work if the illumination is enabled and currently active (ie: you're in the dark).
