    Wallpapers with Solid Colors Changing Hues!

    Hello all,

    This might be difficult to describe... bare with me.

    When I set a wallpaper to my desktop that has near solid color (like the attachment I have provided), I can stare at it and watch the grey color change hues ever so slightly. It's almost like waves or ripples. When I view the picture in Photo Viewer, it's fine. This only happens when I set it as a wallpaper.

    I hope someone knows what I am talking about. Lol

    Please help if you know anything about this. Thanks!

    EDIT: Actually, just viewing that attachment allows me to experience the same issue. This is frustrating... anyone else see what I am seeing?

    So I might have solved it with my own troubleshooting. I figured it had something to do with power settings since it looked like Windows was trying to adaptively change the wallpaper. I made my own power plan and changed the adaptive power setting to off. Rebooted and now it's working as intended.

Why does the colors/saturation keep changing?
I've noticed that the colors and saturation keep changing when I'm watching a movie, for example. I know Windows 8 has variable brightness (which I can't seem to turn off) but does it also have variable saturation? is there any way to fix this? it's really annoying. Thanks in advance.
