Backlight on a Asus Eee PC 901? (12.1)

Recently I installed OpenSuSE 12.1 on my netbook. All went well, but I noticed that the backlight keeps playing up. This happened in 11.4(GNOME/KDE) and 12.1 (KDE/GNOME), and the backlight goes either 0-100, while other distros go 10-100 (At 0 it is off), which was okay, but then it switched to go 0-10-0-100-10-20-1-0, so it it either too bright or not enough.
Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, is there a fix?
