    External Monitor Brightness Resets when turned off


    I recently got an external monitor, Lenovo L24q-20, which I use with my HP Envy Laptop. The brightness of the external monitor is controlled with buttons on the monitor, and is by default set to 80/100. This is a bit too bright for me so I set it down to 50/100, and all is well. However, when my laptop/the monitor go to sleep, when I wake my computer back up the value has reset to 80/100. Does anyone know why this is and any fixes I could try. I've restarted the computer and updated the drivers so far.

    Hi there. WinKey/A > Make sure the lower is expanded > Turn the Night Light off if it's on by clicking on it.

    If that's not it > Settings > System > Power & Sleep > Click on "Additional power settings" at the right > Once there, click the “Change plan settings” link on the selected plan > Browse down to Display –> Enable adaptive brightness, and change the settings there to Off.

    If that doesn't work revert that back.

    I think I wasn't clear when I described the brightness issue. The brightness of the external monitor is controlled within the settings of the monitor, not within my laptop. I've attached a photo of what I'm talking about.

    You were clear. I understood. Just wanted to make sure the system wasn't affecting it.

    Has it always done this? Is this a brand new monitor?

    Hmm. The monitor should keep its settings of course.

    Does changing the brightness of your laptop screen affect the secondary monitor at all? Try while both are on.

    Go here, fill out the info, and see what you can find: Search results | Lenovo US

    As it turns out, the monitor was in Web Pic mode when it should have been in Text Mode. In Text Mode, the brightness settings persist when the monitor is turned off. Horrendous design given that it wasn't in the documentation that came with the monitor or the online documentation, I only found out from reading reviews on Amazon, but oh well, I'm glad it's fixed. Thank you for the help
