    Any idea why the brightness slider stops working? I've removed and reinstalled the latest Intel drivers twice already.

    Also why does the keyboard back light keep going off and on when not plugged in?

    If you have used the slider under power setting say at 50%; at any time when you use the manual function key Fn + F6 to increase to say 100%, your Power setting will be adjusted to 100%. Meaning after a Restart, your screen brightness will remain at the last adjustment instead of your original setting. However, I did notice that occasionally after a resume from hibernate, the Fn + F5 or F6 or the slide does not work until you restart your computer. This definitely is a bug which Sony has to fix.

    As for the Keyboard backlight, there is a setting under Vaio Control Centre/Input Device for Battery and plug-in.

    Yes that is exactly what happens. It is most definitely a bug.

    I had big problems with the wifi speeds even after updating with Vaio update and Windows update. The download speed was 8Mbps on a 100Mbps connection. After uninstalling mcafee my speed went straight up to 100Mbps. Now all wifi issues are gone.

    Thanks! I had to uninstall the Sony-provided driver and then install directly from the Device Manager, but it finally worked.

    This seems to have fixed some graphical glitches obvious in Chrome and Firefox, and also the Intel graphics properties dialog which was crashing before.

    Oh,and VAIO Care was crashing before the update, too!

    Same problem here. After the laptop resumes from sleep, the brightness slider stops working. This started 2 days ago. Also, when I leave the automatic brightness on, the screen changes the contrast now to the point where it is barely legible....Never a dull moment with Sony....

    how many percent do you lose in your battery overnight when the laptop is shutdown? i shutdown my pro 13 leaving 100% battery life around 5pm then open it up the next morning 10am and the battery life is at 91%. is this normal loss even when the laptop is shutdown?

    thanks!
