    Screen just isn't that bright??


    Model: Asus Q550LF

    My laptop is set on High Performance with maximum brightness. For some reason the screen just does not seem all that bright... I seem to typically have this issue with the more modern laptops I've handled. Anyone know what's up?
    EDIT: I might have just seen it adjust automatically...perhaps adaptive brightness causing this?

Today's Bright Young Lad Award goes to me. I had to set up my beloved Windows 8 so that I could turn it off. After months of use, I noticed today that the top right corner of my keyboard has three buttons: "Power," "Sleep," and "Wake." Most keyboards do not have these three buttons.
