    Quick Q, apologies if this has come up previously.

    I've just upgraded to Mavericks but I didn't know how to do this on ML either so that's frankly immaterial.

    Basically, for the most part, I like to have my brightness on 50% on battery and I usually have it the same on power too.

    But it's just struck me that's a bit mental. So, is it possible to set my brightness at 50% on battery but ensure my rRMP automatically adjusts the brightness when on mains power?

    Essentially, if it's plugged in, I want it to manage itself in terms of brightness. But as soon as I unplug it, it defaults to 50%. And then the same in reverse, if I start on battery, as soon as I plug it in, I want it to manage the brightness automatically again.

    Any help, much appreciated!

    I've never heard of being able to do this with just the System Prefs. Maybe there's a utility or preference pane that you can download for that, or perhaps a setting related to location-based preferences...
