Maybe it's good to notice that it's indeed possible to understand what's meant here with some experience - some further explanation would be nice especially for people who don't - like a tooltip that occurs when hovering the text next to the check buttons which explains that the reduction occurs when unplugging the laptop and the dimming after a special amount of time (what time?), if both enabled additionally to the reduction setting.
