    For some reason, my 2011 15" Macbook Pro seems to have an ambient light sensor with cataracts. I hate to change the default brightness on any Apple device, but this is just ridiculous. To make it go to maximum brightness and turn off the keyboard backlight, I had to shine a laser into the sensor. Right now, the keyboard backlight refuses to turn off, and I've manually turned up the brightness. Anyone else have this problem?

    #3 can't manually adjust your keyboard? F5 / F6 ???

    I agree my ambient light sensor is not what it was on my 2010. I may try a reset to see if that fixes, but honestly I haven't missed it.
