Macbook Keyboard does not light up

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 1:09 PM

I found that if I turn on FileVault my keyboard backlight doesn't come on at initial Login screen from boot. Nor can I adjust the brightness of my screen or keyboard backlit. The moment I turn off FileVault I can then adjust those things and everything works fine.

 

I say initial because if I log out of my user and am taken to the login screen I can adjust both keyboard and screen backlights.

 

You can see if you have FileVault turned on by going to

System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> FileVault (Tab)

 

Also I think that its important that we let Apple know this is going on. If you feel up to it I would send them feedback. I mean if you would like to that is. https://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html
