Hi, I have exactly the same problem, brightness reset to 100% everytime I log into my session. Fedora 15 x86_64
Comment 3 JP 2011-06-13 08:49:39 EDT
gnome-power-manager reads the brightness settings from: backlight-enable = /apps/gnome-power-manager/backlight/enable brightness-dim-battery = /apps/gnome-power-manager/backlight/brightness_dim_battery brightness-ac = /apps/gnome-power-manager/backlight/brightness_ac brightness values can be checked via: gsettings get org.gnome.power-manager brightness-ac and changed via: gsettings set org.gnome.power-manager brightness-ac [0.0000 - 1.0000] This change persists. I no longer have this issue on Gnome3/GDM
Comment 4 collura 2011-10-24 04:04:36 EDT
settings screen problem still there with fc16-gnome-beta it seems. thought it got fixed in fc15-gnome at some point but maybe i just gave in and ran the dconf editor to change the brightness-ac variable at some point... however as of fc16-gnome-beta dconf-editor settings seem to be ignored and that variable seems to have no effect so maybe i lost track of how we setting variables again but it looks like am back to using the slider at each boot to set brightness lol.

Comment 6 Daniel Rindt 2012-07-12 03:14:59 EDT
I have exactly the same problem on f17. On my system the settings for bluetooth, brightness and behavior when battery powered are lost after a reboot. The mentioned key brightness-ac to set manually is not existing. Only the sound level is the same i set after a reboot.
Comment 7 Rob Crowther 2012-07-20 21:28:50 EDT
In F17 there doesn't seem to be any such key as gnome-power-manager. There is a key power-manager but it has none of the properties mentioned in comment 6.
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-07 11:12:20 EDT
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version' of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX. (Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.) Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on "Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that version of Fedora. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
