Anybody having this problem when it's plugged in? Kind of annoying
The new machines have the ambient light sensor found on the Pro's for a long time. If you don't like it, turn it off in System Preferences->Displays.
yes!!! I just came on here to post that. I have the tv on a few feet away and my computer screen was going nuts! where is the ambient sensor located on the macbooks? i was afraid I got a faulty one but it's good to know it's meant to happen
sensor should be right by the camera
Haha, I was wondering what the hell was going on. Sometimes I wake my MacBook up and brightness is at lowest. Sometimes it was at max. It was driving me crazy. I will assume this is the cause.
the ambient light sensor is a truly worthless feature
If you don't use it, turn it off. I love the feature, it is excellent in changing environments.
my computer doesn't have it, i'm getting the 2.0
i trust myself to be able to competently adjust the lighting better than some sensor that randomly changes lighting if my hand moves in the wrong position
It's not that drastic at all!
Like I said, turn it off if it is of no use to you individually...
haha i was just wondering the same, i thought my eyes were going crazy!! The macbook started to put me in a trance. Now i turned it off PERFECT!!
Just to be clear, the 2.0 model also has the sensor for the display brightness.
Yep I have the 2.0 model and it does have the sensor
wish they had given us the keyboard backlight and taken that thing out :|
Yeah, this feature can be funky.
On the Q1 2008 MBP that I have the sensor at night can even by affected by what's on the screen. When surfing and a page comes up that is all white, the screen changes thinking the lights came on! Then when a darker page comes up, it changes again.
You kind of get used to it but kind of not.
