    PC awakes with changed brightness level - I'm flummoxed

    Intermittently, but noticeably, my always mains connected laptop is coming out of sleep with the brightness adjusted to the level set by 'on battery' in power management. I have observed this happening with both of the power plan options of balanced and performance. During sleep there's been no interruption to the electricity supply. Any ideas?

    I think I may have solution to a dimmed screen on a Lenovo laptop. Read elsewhere that you need to go into the Lenovo Vantage settings and turn OFF 'Dynamic Brightness Control' in hardware settings. Touch wood - all working fine since.
