Yup, and it is not a separate light, it's just from ambiant light from the display; no additional power is used

Wrong!!

Actually, the light comes from the TFT's backlighting, if you reduce the brightness, you also reduce the glow of the apple logo. However, if your using your powerbook on the windowsill on a bright sunny day, this will cause the centre of your display to be slightly lighter than the rest. And when sleeping, you can just about make out the logo on the dimmed display (i don't always close it)
