    Annoying screen dimming Intel HD Graphics 3000


    Hi!
    I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E520 with an Intel Core I3-2330M CPU and Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU

    The problem I'm facing, is that the screen keeps turning the brightness up and down by itself.
    I'm running Windows 8 Pro X64 and the latest drivers from Intel's website
    I found a setting called "Display Power Saving Technology" in the Intel control panel.. disabled it but it didn't help..

    Does anyone know how to disable this annoying feature?

    Disable dynamic brightness control in your power manager.

    Maybe a stupid question, but where do I find that setting?

    That's not a stupid question at all; however, it would be easier for me to answer if I had a ThinkPad.
    Try these instructions:

    Good luck.
