Well first of all its very a cool idea. I don't know how the keyboard backlight is wired, but it may be as simple as adding a splice from the little pulse LED on the front of the powerbook to the leads of the keyboard's LED, asuming they are accessable. try to add a small plug or connector (the common kind found throughout laptop wiring) so you can still disconnect the keyboard. I tend to think in hardware terms, I don't know if this is possible via software.
