"Auto adjust brightness" toggle switch gone from early 2011 MBPs?

    Just got a new 15"MBP and have noticed that the toggle switch for "auto adjust brightness according to ambient light" is no longer present in the Energy Saver preferences.

    How do I control this now?

    Also, does the screen brightness I have set using the F2 keys not hold its setting once the computer goes to sleep or is restarted?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you looked in System Preferences > Displays yet? That is where it is for me on my 2009 MBP.


    And my screen brightness stays the same if that box is unchecked and I sleep the MBP or have to restart it.

    Confirm, yes it's under the displays system preferences pane.
