    The lowest brightness setting in XP (Boot Camp) is much higher than the lowest setting in Leopard. Is there anyway to further reduce the screen's brightness in XP?

    in short answer is No, even running on Win7 it's quite brighter. Ring up Apple and complain. Maybe they can release a fix.

    I was afraid of that. Even in a dimly lit room the screen is almost intolerably bright. Hopefully Apple will get onto this.

    OK, thanks.

    I updated my nvidia drivers, both graphics drivers and nforce drivers from the nvidia site. The screen's brightness range is much better now, it seems as good as it is in os x.
