There is definitely something strange going on in the settings daemon (also). When I select the "screen" settings and slide the "brightness" control, I would expect the screen to get darker or brighter depending on the direction in which I move the slider. This is not happening. When I move it to the left it sometimes gets brighter then darker and brighter again. Very strange. The brightness keys, when they work which is not always the case, have a similar effect. Dimming may actually make the screen brighter.

I still observe the original problem. When the screen dims, it stays dark. Hibernate/resume will bring it back. It's easy enough to reproduce. Let me know if I can help to debug this.
