Applescript to Adjust Monitor Brightness
I'm currently writing an applescript to use as an alarm clock (playing itunes at full blast, displaying my dashboard with the weather and news), but of course, to actually get to sleep I have had to turn the brightness of the monitor right down, which means that I have to manually turn it back up again.
The Script I am currently using is
tell application "System Preferences" activate set current pane to pane "com.apple.preference.displays" tell application "System Events" delay 5 set value of slider 1 of group 2 of tab group 1 of window "Color LCD" of process "System Preferences" to 0.5 delay 5 end tell quit end tell
any ideas what I am doing wrong?

"Color LCD" should work, as long as that is the correct name of your monitor. When you open display prefs yourself, what does it say at the top of the window? That is the name of your display.
