    Windows 8


    Thanks - already done that & it made no difference. It dims to literally 10%, even though settings are specified as 100%. Also doesn't explain why it dims in the first place given that I've disabled these services?

    Oliver,

    If you have a store bought PC like Dell, check to see if it may have any proprietary software installed that is controlling the settings for this instead.

    LOL - I just found this feature on my laptop. Was wondering why my screen seemed a little dim. Turned off Adaptive brightness and nearly went blind due to the instant brightening of the screen

    I knew I had a camera but I thought I disabled auto dimming feature when I neglected to install the Asus Power4Gear software when I did a clean install of 8.1. Never even thought about looking for this feature.

    Now I just have to re-run my color management software again to re-calibrate the display.

    Thanks for the tut

    BTW can I lock out adjusting the display brightness once set. Sometime I accidentally hit the brightness keys on the keyboard when searching for function keys.

    Again, thanks.

    Hey Drew,

    Not sure about the brightness keys, but you might see if you may be able to remap them, or turn them off if the OEM has software included to do so.

    Yeah I may revisit the Power4Gear software at a later date to see if it allows me to disable those keys.

    Thanks Shawn
