That'll work if your screen brightness is linked to your volume, a.k.a Disco lighting!!

Hey smart guys with Volumouse I simply hold down my shift key and roll my mouse wheel to increase or decrease screen brightness. This program also allow you to adjust window transparency it's not just for volume. As far as SPAM goes I'm only sharing information on applications that work well for me. I'm not in the business of selling anyone's products. Just trying to be helpful. Take it, leave it or shove it!

but is it true screen dimming or is just putting up an overlay. As in is it turning down the back light? (thanks for the suggestion, I thought it was spam because thats all you said and it seemed audio based)

It doesnt actually adjust the system screen brightness so I must assume it's an overlay, but it works quite well for me. Give it a try it only uses about 2000k in process memory. If you choose to try it it in options select more>type>on screen display(it looks better).

Ok so I have all my shortcuts set up and I have a program that cycles through them when ever i press a certain key combination. But I find that every now and then the brightness level is adjusted on some of my power settings without me changing it! Do you know how I could make it so this doesn't happen, make it like read only or something.
