    Hi Shawn,
    I can't find a Catalyst Control Center from my Search bar.
    I do have a similar looking AMD VISION Enging Control Center but it doesn't have the options your image shows
    On the left-hand menu there are only three choices: Pinned, Presets and Power.
    There is an option to Enable or Disable Smart Sleep and I tried both settings but neither choice had any effect on the dimming problem.

    Perhaps it is because I don't have any gaming software or didn't allow gaming features at set-up?

    Usually you would see the CCC option when you right click on the desktop if installed.

    No worries though. The main thing is that you got it to work using the max settings. I was just wondering if it would have the same effect if you disabled PowerPlay.

    Hi I've got an Acer Aspire and I've done everything you said to disable adaptive brightness and when I take my charger out, the menu in intel for 'power saving technology' keeps turning back on, and then my screen goes dim. I've saved it over 10 times, disabled it everywhere but it keeps coming on in that menu. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Hello 3476, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Did you set this for both the "Plugged in" and "On battery" settings?

    I have and then as soon as I put my laptop on charge and take the plug out, it reverts back to the setting where it's turned on. It also does it when I shutdown, thanks!

    It sounds like some other power management program installed is overriding your settings. As a test, troubleshoot with a clean boot to see if it may help to ID the culprit. My guess would be some program the OEM had preinstalled on the computer.

    Nevermind, it seems to have came back on. I've disabled every adaptive brightness setting and done what you said, do you have any other suggestions? Thanks

    3476,

    If you haven't already, check to see if your auto dim settings may be the issue.

    Found this is an animation in the Tile version of IE in Windows 8. Not a contrast dimming issue. Solved! Thanks for the write up.;
