Default Backlight Always On At Brightest Level

Please Login to Remove!

8700c goes from screen off to screen on to screen on at highest intensity. Whenever the screen goes on, I always prefer the highest intensity brightness.

I have auto backlight feature on. Sometimes it goes to brightest setting, but sometimes not. When it does not, I'm always hitting the power button to get to the higher intensity brightness.

I have all options set for highest intensity (100).

Is there anyway to bypass the middle brightness setting and just have the device go from screen off to brightest intensity?

I know that this is supposed to save battery life, but I'm always manually going to brightest intensity, and I have the extra capacity battery.

TIA

Thanks. Tried that, too. In that configuration, the 8700c only goes to the brightest intensity when I tap the power key to get screen brightness to the next level. My screen brightness toggles through screen off, screen on, screen on brightest intensity, screen off ...

I don't think you can set it to go to that "super bright" level that it goes to when you press the power button once. That is like 110% brightness.

The whole Auto Backlight thing confuses me. At 100%, I found it too bright, so I switched it to 80%, and turned OFF the ABL.

When I "un-sleep" the BB, the screen goes to brighter than my 80% (I assume 100%) for something like 10sec, and then dims down to 80%.

When I turn ABL ON, and "un-sleep" the BB, it goes to bright for about half a sec, and then drops to the 80%.

My thinking on the ABL, was that if ambient light was low, and ABL was set to ON, it would come on and brighten the screen (and number pad). It does do that if I put my hand over the unit at an angle and peek in.

If ABL is OFF, the screen (and number pad) come on. Odd to me. Sounds backwards. If OFF, it comes ON. Maybe I'm crazy.

yeah, i just hastily created a new topic on this same issue, i dont think there is a way around it. i think it may be an error in the software. there is no way to keep in on the fullest intensity. it always resorts to the lower intensity backlight no matter what setting it is on
