Currently Being ModeratedMay 23, 2008 6:13 PM (in response to life4rent)I have experienced this as well. I believe this occurs when the ambient-light sensor believes that there is sufficient light in the room to not necessitate the use of the keyboard lights.
Try this: Cover the hole left of the iSight with your finger, and press the F6 key. After a while, the keyboard light should start to brighten. If you remove your finger, the lights should go out, once again preventing you from powering the lights.13.3" MacBook (white), Mac OS X (10.4.6), 2.0GHz, 1GB RAM, 80GB hard drive
