I have been trying to turn on the backlight on my powerbook but I can't figure out where to turn it on. The Mac Help says the contol is in system preferences under Keyboard and Mouse. I have looked here and I can't find it. Any Ideas?

If you have a 12", then it doesn't have a backlight. They don't really tell you that anywhere, but it's only on the larger models. I tried to figure that one out once, too.

Right now with the powerbooks, both 15" models have the backlit keyboard. before they updated, didn't the second 15" model (superdrive) have the backlit keyboard.? I think that is what avalon is referring to.
