Yes, this is true for people with laptops that provide brigthness control 
through SW. Most (all?) HP laptops (probably some other too) do not provide 
this - brightness is controled with autosensor or HW keys only, therefore the 
brightness feature of guidance-power-manager is disabled and is not changed 
on power plugged/unplugged event.
