Description Daniel Walsh 2010-12-17 08:47:39 EST
I have tried the shortcut keys,  They do not work.  I fired up the power-manager and told it not to do it, but it still does it.  I slid the brighness slide bar on the power manager but it did not seem to do anything.

I have to do 

echo 15 >  /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness

To get it back.

Does this still happen with 3.0.0? Thanks.
