Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 694959
Brightness is set to maximum when on battery
Last modified: 2012-08-07 16:02:45 EDT
Description of problem: Every time you unplug or start the computer with the power supply unplugged the luminosity is set to maximum. I believe it should be set to minimum or at least could be configurable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-power-manager-2.91.93-1.fc15.x86_64
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unplug power supply
2. The luminosity is at the same level
Perhaps this is a nouveau issue? (xorg-x11-drv-nouveau-0.0.16-24.20110324git8378443.fc15.x86_64)
Also true after update: gnome-power-manager-3.0.0-1.fc15.x86_64
It's set to the system default at startup. We're probably going to copy the behaviour from Win7 for 3.2 as it makes more sense than what we have now.
I figured out something today. I booted on Fedora with th switch for the wireless/bluetooth off and then the screen luminosity was at a small level.
Once I switched on the button it was set again to maximum.
Is it related?
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Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained.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:
