Hello Folks,


since the last Engery Manager Update I have an issue with the adjustment of the brightness of the display.


The issue occures with the Engery Manager 3.61 as well.


When the automatic brightness adjustment is set to a time (lets say 3 min) this doesnet work. The T410s changes from the internal intel to the nvidea grafic card and back, but the brightness is not adjusted.


Does someone have the same problem or has a solution for me?

hey johnripper,

could you try uninstalling both the power manager and the graphic card driver from your unit.

then reinstall only the power manager. set the auto-brightness setting. give it a whirl. does it work?

once done, reinstall the graphic card driver and run the test again.
