Are you having trouble with your Macbook and the Touch Bar light turning off? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

The Macbook has a built-in feature called the Touch Bar, a small display located at the top of your keyboard that can provide quick access to various functions such as adjusting volume or brightness. However, sometimes the Touch Bar light will turn off and won’t respond to any commands.

If this is happening to you, don’t panic! We’ve got some tips on how to get your Macbook and its Touch Bar back up and running again.

First, make sure that Show Control Strip is enabled in System Preferences. Keyboard. Then go to Displays in the sidebar and click the Night Shift button on the right, then drag the slider to change the color temperature Night Shift uses.

You may also need to check your settings under System Preferences. Keyboard? Touch Bar Shows. Make sure App Controls is selected in the drop-down list.

If these steps don’t work, you may need to reset your SMC (System Management Controller). To do this, press down and hold Shift + Option + Control + Power keys for 10 seconds (the keys are usually abbreviated as S+O+C+P). After releasing all of these keys together, press the power button once more. Your Mac should now be running normally again!

We hope these steps have been helpful in getting your Macbook up and running with its Touch Bar light back on!
