Description of problem:
When pressing the brightness buttons on the keyboard there is a short delay before the LCD atually changes brightness. If the key is held down key repetitions are buffered causing brightness to keep changing multiple seconds after releasing the key. With FC2 the actual brightness on the LCD would be changed instantly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press brightness up or down key
Actual Results: Brightness changes after a short delay
Expected Results: Brightness changes at once
The computer is a Compaq Presario 2166EA.
