  1. How do I easily stop my display from dimming after installing Windows 11?


    I recently upgraded to Windows 11 and after installing the update the screen was instantly dimmed. Luckily I was able to power off the monitor and then powering on the computer monitor made the screen return to normal. I had installed all the latest drivers for an AMD Radeon RX580. Whenever I disabled the drivers to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter it did not dim down upon restart, but it switched back automatically to the Radeon RX580 drivers. Also when I go into Display Settings it will dim down. Do you know what is causing these issues for the most part?

    :)

    display dimming

    Hi,

    There's a possibility that this issue is due to the Display settings of your device. For us to isolate your concern, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Is it only happening when you connect your device to Windows 10?
    • If it's not connected, have you noticed certain activities wherein the screen dims automatically?
    • Have you tried using a different HDMI cable?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    We hope to hear from you soon.

    How do I easily stop my display from dimming after installing Windows 11?

    Display dim after 20s

    Hi!

    Since some update ago my display dims after exactly 20 seconds of inactivity. In fact, it does not dim, this seems to be a software effect. The reason why I make this deduction is because all of the background lowers in brightness but the mouse pointer stays the same suggesting that this is not a hardware dimming feature kicking in.

    What is also fascinating is after an additional 20-40s the display turns completely off. This is not how I have configured my power settings.

    As a good googler I found a couple of threads addressing this. And I would like to outline what measures I have taken to try to remediate the issue before making this post so that duplicated suggestions are not given.

    - Updated graphics card drivers

    - Patched windows

    - Installed Windows 11 23H2

    - Let Windows update check for all driver patches

    - I don't have any adaptive brightness enabled nor even available to configure

    - Ran the power troubleshooter without remediation

    - Edited my power plan to make sure that display off timers are set correctly. They have been set to turn off display after 5 minutes. This value seems to be ignored

    - Ran the Intel Graphics Command Center app and turned off "Display power settings" under System => Power

    - Forced enable of "Dim display after" in advanced settings (https://www.makeuseof.com/windows-show-dim-display-after-option/) and then set it to 5 minutes. This value seems to be ignored

    - It's not hardware controlled as anything outside of Windows (live USB, BIOS settings, boot menu etc) does not exhibit this behavior

    As said this seems to be a software dimming as the mouse pointer remains bright as a shining star. It seems to be a newly introduced feature as my laptop has not behaved like this before.

    Platform: Lenovo Carbon X1 Gen 10

    UEFI version: 1.40

    Panel: Lenovo OLED 2k display

    Windows version: 11 build 22631.2506

    Any suggestions appreciated!
