The screen seems to dim slightly when anything on it changes, whether that be a video playing, a window moving, or a cursor blinking.

This does not happen when something is playing in the background.

  • Alienware 17 R2
  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • Gnome Shell version 3.28.2
  • Nvidia GTX 980M
  • Driver version 390
  • Kernel Version is 4.15.0-30-generic

I have disabled The ambient light sensor and idle dim in dconf-editor. Advice would be appreciated.
