View Full Version : [SOLVED] nearly black screen upon wake-up from sleep

July 12th, 2010, 04:39 PM
I was noticing that my screen was black (well the back-light was off but I could tell that that there was very dim color) whenever I would wake up from sleep. Since I have the option set to enter a password, I couldn't use the brightness keys to adjust the brightness and see what I was doing.

The solution was to put the following in /etc/pm/power.d/10_backlight_max


fblevel 15

15 is the max brightness for my screen, but fblevel supports numbers up to 30.
