Looking at it how do you think it would be powered?

Same way the keyboard is powered normally. Right though it's cable connection.

As long as the ribbon cable powers it, I cant see it taking more than a minute or two off the overall battery.

"el-wire" seems promising. as thin as 1.2 mm and im sure the 9v driver can be worked around. multiple colors to choose from.

Alienware laptops with LED keyboards have a aditional wire connection to power the LED's. The wires are thickker and more heavy duty so I would think the ribbon connection that the gateway has wouldn't be enough.

What I would suggest is to relay power from the top piece that's lighted down to the keyboard's lighting source

Gateway P-7805u/ 320GB 7200rpm HDD/ 4GB DDR3 1066mhz/ Intel P8400 @ 2.26ghz/ Geforce 9800m GTS 1GB/ Vista X64 for me.

One minor mod, added a 500gb hdd @7200 rpm, kinda wish I had done another 320 for RAID 0. DO NOT try overclocking using EVGA precision... it just messes things up.
