I believe the GNOME Power Manager tool can fix this by changing your 'battery mode' settings.
From what I've seen, most people are willing to trade brightness for battery life.

You're free to use any other OS and/or distribution :) You're also free to change the code.
Even if you're not a coder, you're free to join the Fedora mailing lists and argue against
these kind of choices. That's a lot of freedom!

No, upstream GNOME (release team), decided that the new gdm wasn't ready for 2.22. So it's
fedora specific. Hopefully the missing features will be fixed for 2.24.

I was using the laptop in bed, trying not to wake my wife up, so I had the brightness right
down.  It was turning it up to 50%.   Needless to say, I wasn't using the laptop for very
long.
