Display Brightness to 100% after suspend
« on: March 14, 2019, 11:10:33 pm »
HI all,      I am using Xfce Power Manager with Peppermint 9 and each time I put my computer into suspend I have the display brightness set 'just right'.
After I come out of suspend, the display brightness is always up full blast. Is there a way to have it remember what I had it set to or is this just the way it is?

I have looked at the Topic: https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,2952.msg29234.html#msg29234
where a fellow was having a similar problem and the fix didn't work for me (perhaps because he was interested in having the brightness stick after a reboot or shutdown not suspend).

How are you adjusting the brightness ?

I adjust the brightness either by right clicking on the battery icon in the panel and sliding it left or right or fn key with F5 or F6 (on my computer).

Maybe there's no solution to this problem/annoyance but when I accidently posted twice and wanted to delete the duplicate post, there was no option to do so.

Doesn't seem like it happens to many people....more of an annoyance than anything but I guess I can live with it if there is no solution.   :'(
