View Full Version : [all variants] [SOLVED] Laptop Power Management

August 23rd, 2008, 07:12 PM

I've just installed Ubuntu, and it seems pretty good :)

My question is, how can I configure the power consumption for different power modes? For example, I'd like the screen to go less bright when I'm on battery, but come back to normal when I plug it to the electricity.

Thank you.

In your menu find System > Preferences > Power Management and change your settings in there.

Sorry, I forgot to clarify that would be in Ubuntu Hardy.
