    Hello all!

    One of you guys may know. I use my MBP hooked up to an NEC display with an Apple wired keyboard. Is there any way to have the F1/F2 keys still control the brightness on the MBP display? They currently don't do anything.

    I doubt it considering those keys are specifically for your laptop screen. So of course they would not do anything to your screen by default, especially on your external screen, if you had brightness control, you would then want contrast control etc etc.
