Description Matthias Clasen 2008-02-15 00:57:43 EST
I often see the brightness go spontaneously down, and when I manually make it
bright again, it goes straight back.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2008-02-20 09:38:56 EST
Actually, the spontaneous darkening is gone, nowadays. 
Instead, the brighness applet tells me: 

DEBUG: ERROR: Dim capable hardware not present
WARNING: GetBrightness failed!

and shows me the red stop sign...
