    I'm just now noticing a weird dimming of my screen.....actually I noticed it before but until today I just thought it was my imagination.

    It doesn't depend on the ambient lighting.....it's kinda like on the new smart TV's ...when you get dark images on the screen, it automatically dims down...when you go back to a bright image then the screen gradually lights up again.

    Anyone know how to make this stop...it's really annoying.

    P.S. adaptive brightness is already disabled in windows...including in registry

    I get the same thing. I know of no idea how to stop it. Sometimes it pisses me the hell off.

    I have a feelong this stuff is somehow related to the hotkey app.

    Is that app really necessary?

    I mean can't we just run the laptop without it?

    You could, but your hotkeys may not respond. Keyboard backlighting won't likely work well (if at all) and you won't be able to disable the trackpad and you POSSIBLY won't be able to use max fans.

    Yeah...I was thinking about the keyboard backlight...

    Touchpad is not a prob....you have a setting in the driver to automatically disable it when connecting a mouse.

    Most other hotkeys aren't really important for me...the only one actually being problematic would be keyboard backlight.

    Also does anyone know what happened to the option to disable the charm bar when swiping in the synaptics driver?

    It was there before..

    Yep.. I noticed it too and glad someone else is seeing it so it isn't just me! Seems like a reboot fixes it for me for a while but is aggravating!

    Its pretty good. Only complaint is that it isnt "too bright" compared to the usual screens I use. Mines Glossy using matte film (as stated in my sig). Downscaling resolution to 1080p is fine. No issues there.

    @weav and those with brightness issues. Hotkey has adaptive brightness. May want to kill it.
