I love the feature that automatically adjusts the brightness of your screen depending on you background light, but for some reason mine seems to be overly sensitive to changes in light and is almost constantly adjusting itself to be dimmer and then brighter again within a few seconds. Is there a way to adjust the sensitivity on this feature?

i have the same exact problem. I thought I had a defective sensor or something. I thought ML fixed the problem but it still persists.

Drives me nuts too. The sensor on my MBP is more accurate.

I've noticed the same problem on iPhone vs iPad, the sensor on iphone 4 is miles better than on ipad (both 2:nd and 3:d gen).
