Ubuntu 7.10 on ThinkPad T60, using the proprietary ATI drivers.
When running on batteries, after a short idle time, the LCD gets very
dark. I thought I could change that with the power manager applet, I
un-selected the "dim display when idle" option. But no luck, the LCD
still gets dark, overrides the brightness level I configured manually,
which is very annoying.
