    Under what condition the display will be dimmed


    Click image for larger version

    In the power option user can set the brightness of dimmed display.

    Is there an option for user to choose under what condition the display will be dimmed?

    As far as I know there is this setting,

    Adaptive Brightness - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    Which is available on yours because I see the option in your screenshot.

    That just uses a light sensor to determine brightness, I don't know of any other condition to use that setting.

    There is also this,

    Dim Display Automatically - Turn On or Off in Windows 8

    I just set all the Dim options to NEVER or NO and that settles it!
    Likewise Sleep and Hibernate..... those I permanently Disable.

    I have a hard enough time reading a Laptop screen without it being dimmed.

    But ask yourself, "when do I want my screen to be dimmed" and then set your power options accordingly.

    Good Luck!

    I disabled the "adaptive brightness".

    I prefer to set the brightness manually at the correct time and to the correct brightness.
