Hey guys, quick question. Is my computer effing up when i have to press the screen dim button to actually make it go down one notch? to make it brighter, one click gets it to move one square, but if i have to dimmer the screen, to go down each step, i have to press the button twice. from the highest brightness to the middle, it'll go down with each click, but past the mid point, it'll take 2 maybe 3 clicks to go down one. what do you guys. wait until a bigger problem arises to get it fixed or go right now?

I expereince the same thing when using the laptop in low light features, it is the auto dim auto brightness feature counteracting with the dim button, call apple about this, its not hardware related, its software related. let us know how it goes.

Well if it's just a software issue I don't think calling Apple will change anything, just wait the will fix it eventually... Probably.
