    Dim screen after upgrading to ICS - advice?

    Hi friends! I was wondering if anyone else here has had this problem, or if you have any advice.

    I just upgraded my phone (Razr Maxx) to ICS and now the screen is stuck in this weird dim mode. I've looked at the Settings--->Display-->Brightness settings, and I have Automatic Brightness disabled. When I try to adjust the brightness (i.e. move the slider) the screen brightens up to the correct amount, but then as soon as the phone falls asleep and I wake it up, it's back to being dim. It's almost like it's unable to wake up out of that dim screen mode after falling asleep.

    I hope that make sense...I can clarify if my post wasn't clear enough. Any suggestions as to how to fix this? Is this a known bug? Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the droid forums... go into your apps tray, Widgets, power control, long press and drag it onto the screen somewhere... if you don't already have it out, now it has 3 on settings, half bright, full bright and auto.. signified with the"a" in the circle.. now.. if you set your screen brightness manually, and then toggle through the settings, it resets down to full dim.. its an ics issue. Unfortunately..

    Thank you SO much! This fixed the issue for me. Yay! Weirdly enough I couldn't find anyone else with the problem when I searched on Google, so I thought it might be just my phone that was acting up. Hopefully if someone else has this problem they'll see this thread and get the solution here. Thanks again!

    Edit: Oh shoot, spoke too soon. As soon as my phone falls asleep and I wake it up, it's back to the dim screen again. Argh.

    Reboot the device... hold volume down and power at the same time... until the phone shuts off.. then try it again

    Unhappy

    Tried powering off and on again, repeated steps, and no change. Like before, the brightness is restored when I cycle through the settings (half, full, auto, none) using the Power Widget, but once the screen falls asleep, it goes back to that dim screen mode and won't "wake up" out of it unless I cycle through those power settings all over again. Cycling through those each time I wake up my phone is a work around, I guess, but not a permanent solution. Anyway, thank you 94lt1 for your help so far.

    No that's what I mean... as soon as you go to full bright, or any other setting, unless you leave it at auto, or off and use your own setting that you manually put in... it will always go to full dim.. it sucks...

    Settings
    Display
    Brightness
    Uncheck "display power saver"
    This will or should cause cessation of issue.
    Thanks,

    I think what they're referring to is that the screen goes full dim unlike gb, it would go back to your manual setting.. which I miss... lol

    I use "notification toggle" which resides as a top bar in my status-notification drop down. The brightness toggle ranges from 10%, 25%, 50%, 100% and auto. My screen settings always are whatever I had it previously set on when I wake it up or reboot my phone. I do not use smart actions (actually have it disabled) but I wonder if that has an automatic setting to revert it back to the dimmest setting each time.
