In System Preferences, under Displays, is the box checked... "Automatically adjust brightness as ambient light changes."13" MacBook Pro (2.26GHz/4GB/160), Mac OS X (10.6.1)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 18, 2009 6:45 PM (in response to JasonFear)Hi,
Just noticed the last few nights my screen going dim. It is plugged in to power, the option for ambient light is checked in System Preferences.
If the room is the same lighting conditions why would the screen dim? In fact, if the room is getting darker wouldn't the screen tend to get brighter and not dim.
I have had the machine a few months (June 2009), and only recently in the last 2 nights noticed the screen is dimming. My concern is that there is something wrong with the display, since I never noticed this behavior before.
If I put my finger over the video cam the screen gets brighter.... guess the light sensor is right next to it.
Your thoughts... do you think I have an issue?MacBook Pro 17" Antiglare Screen, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
