    Hey, I've recently got this (sig) MacBook for my birthday. Its great and I'm really impressed with it, no issues at all.

    There's one thing though. When you disconnect the magsafe, the screen brightness decreases slightly, when connect it back, it restores to whatever with was before. The thing is, I'd like it to automatically decrease the brightness to 50%, instead of 60-65 and when its running of outlet power to make it 100% bright. Now I have to manually adjust the brightness when changing the powersourses and its getting annoying.

    Any automatic way to do it?

    Thanks :)

    :( I've looked countless times there and it doesnt have any sort of an option to tune the exact brightness setting for each powersourse :(

    Change the 'setting for' tab to battery. There is a tick box to "reduce the brightness of display when using this source". You cant set the exact brightness though.

    Send a feature request to Apple via Apple.com/feedback it would be a nice feature to have. :)
