I'm running the 8.10 release on a MBP 4,1 Penryn. Both the keyboard and screen backlight controls work, and the intensity is manually adjustable by appropriate hotkeys (F1-F2 and F5-F6).
Is there a way to change the default settings? The keyboard backlight is always set on, even when on battery. Of course I can manually turn it off using the appropriate key, but I'd like an automatic setup.
Related question: Under OS X the keyboard backlight only comes on when the sensors suggest it is needed, which is pretty nice. Anybody know a way to configure such behaviour in Intrepid?
