Go to your power profile, should have a little icon down on the right of your computer. If not you probably gotta go into control panel. Go to running on batteries, then LCD brightness. Keep it at 9. then save. Good luck.

Hmm. My Win XP SP2 notebook doesn't have anything like those settings.

In my case, the settings for that are in the BIOS.

On my toshiba there is a little light bulb icon in the task bar, you can double click there, or go into the control panel and go to power settings.
