Nice desk paul, and nice lamp, I got the same one back home.
Yeah, I do the same when I wake up, after my shower I check out to pbook to make sure that no dead pixels or white spots are forming, though sometimes I get carried away and start actually USING it before I remember that I haven't eaten
I noticed your backlit keyboard doesn't seem to light up much over the arrow keys, Mine doesn't either, I can't really remember if it ever did, I can see that it's SUPPOSED to, because lights DO turn on behind the keys, but they are faint, maybe this is due to the keys peeling or sometihng...hmm.
either way, I usually use my 'book late at night, and the backlit keyboard is really nice! though, the screen is usually bright enough to see the keys anyway
, it;s still nice eye-candy, and it IS functional, to an extent
I think the backlight...WHOA right as I typed that it turned on...freaky
anyway, I think it would be better suited on a Black keyboard, because sometimes when the backlight only turns on about half way, the result is a grayish light over a gray keyboard, and it actually makes it DIFFICULT to see.
this is only in low light settings, when there is no light other than the display, the keyboard looks black except for the backlight....either way, I really hope Apple incorporates this feature onto their next pro keyboards. Because I have certainly had enough headaches with typing in the dark on my old Pro keyboard with my imac
