Description Marius Andreiana 2007-04-11 13:11:04 EDT
Unplugging the AC power makes the screen brighter
plugging in the AC power makes the screen less bright
Should be the other way (less brightness is less energy consumed).

Looks like it's your BIOS setting the brightness (I too have a Dell that can do
this) -> not a g-p-m bug
