Lenovo Y410 - Screen Dims By Itself

2008-06-16, 20:02 PM
Sometimes when I leave my Lenovo unattended for a few minutes, the screen dims to almost invisible. The only way of getting it out of this seems to be to restart the machine. (Since I can't even see anything on this screen when it happens, I have to do a hard restart by using the power button to shut it down.)

What's going on? It looks like a software bug of some kind because all seems to work fine again on restarting...

Thanks. I did both a while ago (the problem has been going on for months, since I bought the laptop). They seem to have no effect on this particular issue. All screensavers disabled, all power management options disabled and set to never turn anything off (hard disk, screen, etc.).
