SYMPTOMS

When a Windows Vista-based computer resumes from a low-power sleep state, the display brightness may change.

This problem occurs if one of the following conditions is true:

• You temporarily change the display brightness before you put the computer to sleep by using Windows Mobility Center or by using function hotkeys on a mobile computer. Windows Vista stores a brightness preference in power policy and reapplies that preference every time that the system resumes from a low-power sleep state, such as sleep or hybrid sleep.
• The computer BIOS change the display brightness when the system resumes from sleep.
