    Default my screen becomes dim!

    not sure it belongs in this section but when i boot it into just all of a sudden becomes dim on my laptop...i can still see but it sucks that i cant change the settings

    i checked your laptop capatibility list but it doesnt have ASUS m50v series

    so im guessing there is a setting that lets you manually change the brightness of the screen??

    "To manually change brightness, hit fn+a to turn off ambient light
    sensor, then fn+f5/fn+f6 to adjust brightness."

    but that may require a Windows(tm) driver, or maybe the owner's
    manual/documentation covers the subject--i didn't download it and read
    it for you..

    or, who know, maybe ASUS provides a linux driver for the integrated
    brightness sensor, or a way to turn it off in BIOS..

    anyway, this is not an openSUSE problem as far as i can tell...i guess
    google is your friend here.. if the other hits in the above google on:

    "ASUS m50v" linux screen

    don't get you to happiness maybe a piece of tape over the sensor
    will...or, maybe a google on

    "ASUS m50v" linux

    will result in an enlightening moment...let us know..

    How dim? If you are using KDE4 the screen dims to warn of a low battery.
