xfce4-power-manager does not recognize the brightness settings on Lenovo T510 under Xubuntu 11.10 64bit with NVIDIA Graphics

Bug Description

I have a problem when changing the standard brightness on accumulator and in loading state. When I change the two values it will not be saved. Again when I start xfce4-power-manager the settings in percent are at 20 and at 80. I personally use Xubuntu 11.10 64 bit on my Lenovo T510 with Nvidia Graphic Card.

Is there a workaround to solve the problem? Thanks in advance!
