I have here an Asus Eee pc, model is the 1005peb version. Now for the most part it runs fairly decent and quick, not much issue with it except one major one.
Every time I restart or turn on the netbook my brightness is set to full yet my screen is like almost full on black, like it's turned off. I turn down the brightness a couple times using the Fn + F5/F6 keys and it goes nice and bright etc. When I turn the netbook on I have to turn down my brightness level to see the screen at what (I think) is full brightness and it's then ok. If I turn it off and restart etc I have to do it all over again.
Down is up kinda thing...it's an odd and annoying issue, one that I cannot find an answer for anywhere. So if anyone has a solid way of getting it fixed I would be most appreciative. Thanks!
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, Desktop Edition, Standard Grub settings and Kernel no changes to any of the hardcore system settings...
I tried Ilari Kajaste's suggestion and it had no effect. Neither better nor worse.
@fossfreedom I'll look deeper into your suggestion but at this time it looks almost the same as the second answer so I doubt it is what I currently seek.
