"In power preferences, in AC options the slider is for "Set display
brightness" and it's on 100%. The slider for Battery options however is
for "Dim display by", which seems backwards... I don't understand why
they both wouldn't be brightness sliders, but oh well."
Wow. That has to be the worst UI design ever. One slider is a
"brightness" slider, the other a "dimness" slider.
So to keep the display at 100% brightness under all conditions, you have
to move the AC slider to 100% and the battery slider to 0%. To keep the
display at 80% you have to move the AC slider to 80% and the battery
slider to 20%, and so forth.
That brings counter-intuitive to a whole new level. Can anyone confirm
whether this is same issue for Hardy? I don't have my Hardy laptop with
