    I installed Windows 8 along with the Boot Camp drivers on my iMac. I'm having a problem with the display brightness staying at either 0% or 10%. If I change it using in any method, either the keyboard or the slider charm, it will go back to 0% or 10% within two seconds of changing it.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue? I didn't have this issue with the Developer Preview so I don't know why it would do this with the Consumer Preview. I can't find any settings for auto-dimming.

    Hello, I am having the same issue on my new 13" air. I will turn it up and it will go down to 10% then 0%.

    Forgot to mention that this is when running the Consumer preview just released.

    Searched posts in apple community, and found three ways to solve the brightness problem,

    1. Wait for a new release of Apple BootCamp

    2. Go to Nvidia or AMD for the latest graphics/video card driver for Windows 8. In the Control Panel->Nvidia or AMD, you will find the settings to adjust screen brightness.

    3. Ask Mac Brightness Control software for help. $39 is required after a trial period of 15 days.

    I would suggest the second option!
