I am having some weird backlight Brightness issues with 8.10. And my only real issue so far !
1: when waking from hibernation the brightness setting defaults to dim, making it hard to enter my password.
I disabled Hibernation and suspend to avoid this occurring.

2: When idle and the screen goes to sleep, upon waking the screen I get the same dim brightness.
It is occurring when on AC and battery power.
To recover from the issue, you can check / uncheck the "reduce back light brightness" box in the Power management/on battery power tab. (even when on AC power)
Is any one else experiencing this ?
This is the second time I have installed 8.10 after frustration with XP. I dont recall it being an issue with my first install.
I have learnt much already thanks to every one, and still learning.
