Not 13.04-specific; I installed 13.04 on three different Lenovos including a T500 without this problem. –  K7AAY Jan 2 at 19:03

You can try to login and set the brightness via the brightness control.

Or you can try if it works with this terminal command

echo 1666 >> /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness

if this works you can add this command to the /etc/rc.local file which will run this command at startup process.

ps. you can change 1666 to whatever you want (more or less brightness)

your answer is true but we need to add sleep 5 (or more, or less) a line above the echo ...-line ,because /etc/rc.local is executed before the screen is fully initialized –  Mostafa Jamareh Jan 4 at 15:51
