    Th bug still being present in the latest developer build is somewhat disturbing.  However, I can't see Apple not having a fix in 10.7.1 and 10.6.9, or in standalone pathces for 10.6.8 and 10.7


    The problem is very disruptive for anyone that uses a 27" iMac as second dispaly for their main machine.  While "Shades" works as a temporary fix for the general masses, it does not help for anyone that needs calibrated color, contrast and brightness (ie, photo workflow etc).  So again, this problem is quite disruptive for many.


    And quite frankly, superkev07 is only partially correct.  Ranting in the forums and denouncing Apple as the anti-christ everytime there is a bug is not helpful.  However, yes, opening bug reports is.  If each person that is having this problem opens a bug report (just one per person), although it will get closed as a duplicate of the original, it gives Apple a watermark of how bad the issue is and can help highten the priority of resolving it.

    10.7.1 is out, and the bug is still there, fyi. Don't upgrade from 10.6.7, even if you're tempted.

    It looks as though this issue will be resolved in 10.7.2. The 11C37 seed reintroduces brightness control.

    Fantastic news!

    Thank you so much for that news!! That's great to hear.

    Great to know that thanks, I think I might keep shades installed though ;-)

    This is a great reason to have time machine backups. I rolled back to 10.6.7 after discovering both lion and 10.6.8 affected the brightness controls like this. Looks like I can go to Lion at 10.7.2... which is awesome. Really loving Lion on my other macs, be awesome to have it on iMac.

    Yes, I've heard a few things about 10.7.2 and one of them is the brightness control issue has been fixed. This is great news. I love Lion too. As soon as 10.7.2 is released I'm getting rid of my Snow Leopard partition. I'm discovering so much more (the little things snow leopard doesn't do) that Lion offers that Apple didn't even advertise.

    I've tried to file bug report as well as apple feedback too.

    I've no plan to upgrade to Lion, not sure if anyone know if this fix will be available in 10.6.9?

    Thanks guys.

    I really hope 10.7.2 is released soon...

  • tom.davey Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry guys. I'm running 10.7.2 here and it still doesnt work

  • superkev07 Level 1 (0 points)

    Are you running the seed from a few days ago?

  • WGrose Level 1 (5 points)

    tom.davey, what version of 10.7.2 are you running? It definitely WAS fixed in 10.7.2 11C37.

  • jeevanx Level 1 (50 points)

    Are you referring to the GM build? I wonder of this is a regression or not, as I've not upgraded yet. Can you not control the brightness at all?

  • tom.davey Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeh I'm running a 2011 MBP 17" to a 2009 3.02 27". I tried, with the iMacs keyboard, to adjust brightness. Voume works, but no brightness....this is the latest seed ...
