lcd screen brightness on a laptop

    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?

    edit:

    update:
    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.

Hi guys :D I have this problem. I turned off my laptop's adaptive brightness off in both plugged in and on battery mode. The problem appears to happen on dark theme program. When I open Steam on my laptop(plugged in), the screen stays right,no reduction in brightness or contrast. When I switch...
So recently I turned on my computer (Acer Aspire V5 122-P) and went to change the brightness. And using the FN keys and changing the brightness returns the same value rather than chaning it. The other FN keys such as Volume +/- and turning adaptars on and off still work. It is just the brightness...

I've recently picked up a Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus (first windows 8 experience) and have come across a display issue whenever the laptop gets unplugged, namely that the colors become incredibly dark as it the contrast takes a dive. Here is a recreation. http://i.imgur.com/CCIb6pQ.png Specs...
For the past few days, I have noticed that sometimes when I switch from one open application to another (like Thunderbird to Chrome, for example) the brightness of my laptop (HP Pavilion 17-e017dx, just purchased about 2 weeks ago) increases. It's only when switching from one to the other,...
