Windows 7: laptop brightness problem

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hi Fender
The problem seems unusual as most of us quite familiar with power option.

How about little manipulation? (as to prove it only)
While the power is unplugged, try to create your own power plan, on the option of "on batteries" and "plugged in" try to slide it to the maximum brightness (the screen will still fade) but when you hit [create] see if it changes.

Hope it helps.

That's annoying

I think I run of an option here.

Did your Samsung came with factory power management utility? Mine (ASUS) has that utility name Power4Gear Hybrid.

6 months ago I bought Samsung netbook for my kid, It has power utility that is even able to manage the USB port [on] while the netbook [off]. (for charging any gadget)
