X1 6th Gen - Brightness not changing when power removed

2020-02-05, 1:48 AM

Hi All,

 

As will this X1 6th Gen and ALL my previous Thinkpads the screen would dim to the brightness level set on the "battery" settings when the power cable was removed.  This current unit did the same.  However following what I think was a recent update the screen no longer changes brightness regardless of wether the power is connected or its running on battery.  This is frustrating.  Any fix of is this an update on purpose from Lenovo?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi Badgeros! Where did the update came from? Is it a Lenovo update or Windows update? Try to asjust the settings, open the Control Panel --> Select “Hardware and Sound,” --> select “Power Options,” and click the “Change plan settings” link next to the power plan you’re using.

 

Configure different screen brightness levels for “On battery” and “Plugged in” under “Adjust plan brightness.” This setting is tied to your power plan. You can configure different screen brightness levels for different power plans and switch between them. You can refer to the photo below.

Hey Jwes,

 

Thanks for the reply.  I am quite computer literate and have tried all these obvious settings.  In the case of your suggestion the options are not even available - even under advanced settings.  Why would this be.  Any ideas:-
