I'm running Kubuntu Oneiric on a Macbook2,1. Regardless of whether pommed is running or not, and regardless of whether I've adjusted brightness before going to suspend, brightness is 100% *after* resume from suspend. I've tried adjusting the "initial backlight value" in /etc/pommed.conf.
Any ideas? It's more an annoyance than anything, I'm pretty happy with this iteration of Kubuntu.
