    If I set my brightness on the iPad all the way down with auto adjust turned off and subsequently go into the iBooks app the brightness goes back to full. This persists even after I close iBooks and go to the settings. The brightness "slider" still shows the lowest setting possible but the brightness is at max. A slight wiggle of the slider corrects the issue, but of course if I open iBooks again the problem re-occurs. Is anyone else experiencing this issue or is it simply a bug in the new iBooks update they just released? Thanks.

    earth, for now.
    I haven't had this issue myself. But I have noticed that within the iPad os, when i turn the brightness all the way down and then when I got into iBooks and select the brightness features I'm able to lower the intensity even more so, but once i exit the ibooks app it readjusts back to what i have selected in the settings>brightness menu. I kinda wish i was able to turn the screen down as much as the ibooks allows throughout the whole environment. Makes it easier on the eyes when casually surfing in a dark room.

    The iBooks app doesn't actually dim the screen beyond the normal level, it simply greys out the pixels to make it appear dimmer. Hit the volume button to see, it's brighter than the whites on the page.

    Wish this could be applied globally. Safari is still too bright at night.

    Thanks for the link....obviously this is just something that needs a update from Apple. Seems like it is a 3.2 issue rather than iBooks.
