alright, i know everyone was disappointed with not having backlit keys in the 12" Powerbook. I didnt really care much till i purchased a 17" about a month ago and was wondering if i could pull it off on my 12" powerbook. I saw the guy that did the fiber optics on his ibook. I liked the idea and wanted to do the same thing on my 12". So heres my questions....
1. I want to purchase a 17" powerbook backlit keyboard off ebay, take off the backlit panel on the back of it and then put it on my 12" keyboard and somehow wire the power to my screens power or some power somewhere inside (thats where i need your guys help and advice. it looks like its) The guy who did the ibook wired a LED up to his screens power supply and id like to do that.
2. With number one being said, exactly how much power and whatnot does it take to run the backlit apple keyboard. I dont care to much for the ambient sensors (dont like them anyway) I want it either on whenever my screen is on, or i was thinking about wiring up a on off button next to the power button and make it match (but thats later).
guys let me know your thoughts and everything... seems like its to cramped and everything in there.. but i know its gotta b possible..
