Set the brightness to 10% at start up

  • Type: Incorrect Functionality
  • Version Tested: 1.2b3 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.6
  • Status: Open



Thanks for this bright idea !
I encountered a problem a few minutes after installing the panel... and i think i'll not be the only one.

I tried to set the luminosity to the minimum (0%) and after I was not able to set it back because my screeen was black. I tryed to reboot... but my screen faded again while the panel loaded.
After several reboots I finaly managed to set the luminosity back with the slider just before the system shuts down (it's hard to do !). I had not activated the hot keys and i didn't know about the emergency restore either.

Maybe it would be better to set back automaticaly the value to 10% while starting up if the value was under 10%. Or to restore the luminosity while pressing cmd alt esc, what most people will spontaneously do.
