View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop - Idle Dim - After inactivity not restored ...

November 25th, 2010, 12:31 PM

if I enter the dim backlight option it goes more or less completely dark - which, of course, is good because it saves power in inactivity.

However, once I move the mouse it restores some of the brightness BUT it is LOWER than before AND also lower than the the brightness level in battery mode (which is by default 50 % I think; it is way below that one).

Also when I enter the gnome-power-settings the brightness level is also lowered.

I have an Acer Aspire 1551 with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4225 using the default open-source drivers.
