Brightness controls - a non-standard Pick of the Week
Authored by: efs on Oct 16, '07 10:16:40AM
I read that discussion on brightness control progrmas over at Macworld (thanks), and it reminded me of my eMac problem, so it seems (somewhat) appropriate to ask here.... I don't think any of these programs will fix it, but my eMac always returns to full brightness after waking from sleep. Annoyingly consistent about it. A single touch of the brightness control instantly returns it to the previous setting, even if it was all the way dimmed. Is this an eMac problem, or just my problem? Thanks.

I've seen this happen, as well. My favorite feature of DarkAdapted is the auto-refresh setting, which automatically refreshes the brightness to your preferred level at intervals you specify -- effectively counteracting any app (or sleep) that resets brightness to full.
