    Okay, I think this started happening after updating to 10.6.8. But whenever I take a break from my laptop, I put the brightness to zero and leave the laptop to 'sleep' without putting the cover down. However, sometimes the brightness just turns up automatically by itself and then I have to press the 'lower brightness' to make it zero again. Why does this happen? And does anyone know how to fix? Wasting my battery.

    You may have the brightness set to auto adjust to different light conditions.

    System Preferences > Display > Untick "Automatically adjust brightness" :D
