lcd screen brightness on a laptop

  1. #11

    nope, no adaptive brightness and I'm currently on the balanced plan.

    now I need to hunt down the settings that dim my display when on battery, I want to turn that off.

    Strange. I've got 3 w7\w8 laptops here with no implementation for screen luminosity relative to ambient light, but all offers to turn it on or off in power settings ! Your laptop does control luminosity, yet seemingly gives you no options to turn in on or off.
    It's probably available in some specific Sony app, maybe Vaio Control Centre ?

    Good luck.

    well... its not interfering with what I'm doing, so unless it starts doing something unexpected like dimming my screen to say 40% then I dont think I need to worry, I just wanted to know if I could stop that..

    *facepalms* you know, I did just test this machine on battery, with ironman 2008 in the dvd drive and I didnt notice anything..irritating. maybe I'm just borrowing trouble here where there doesnt need to be any?


    alright, just checked sony support, I've got the most current drivers for my hardware.

    unless it starts acting squirrely I'm gonna let it be.

The other FN keys such as Volume +/- and turning adaptars on and off still work. It is just the brightness...
