HOW CAN I ILLUMINATE MY LAPTOP Keyboard FOR WHEN I TYPE IN THE DARK OR DIM LIT AREA'S?

IS THERE A SIMPLE AND EASY HACK USING WHATS ALREADY BUILT IN OR CAN WE MAKE THE SYMBOLS ONLY ON ALL MY KEYBOARD BUTTONS LIGHT UP JUST ENOUGH TO BE VISIBLE(NOT TOO MUCH POWER CONSUMPTION)?

If you have a Dollar Tree store in your area they have an LED light that you can plug into the USB plug it's what I did and it's only one dollar. =) Another thing they have for a buck is a small battery operated LED tap light that if you make a stand or make something to clip it on to your laptop on the top of the screen and you can add a USB wire to plug it in if you don't want to use it with batteries. Now if you have a white LED ,wire,and a USB plug and you can solder you can make one too. Do a search in the upper right search box for COMPUTER LIGHT or KEYBOARD there's some ideas you can try. It will be cool if there was some clear keyboards then you can add the LEDS inside the keyboard to light them up. I had an idea of modding my laptop with an built in light at the frame of the screen but I don't want to open it yet because of the warranty. I think that will be my first instructable .. =) Hope this gives you some Ideas.
