What to do if the screen brightness reverts to the previous state even after adjusting with Fn + F5?

    After adjusting LCD brightness using Fn + F5, it can restore to the previous status under the following circumstances.
    Only for models with  PowerPanel pre-installed.

    • Restart Operating System.
    • Exit Screen Saver program (password protect).
    • Exit Hibernate or Sleep mode.

    Brightness setting always takes PowerPanel mode setting as a standard.
    Base on that case, it is invalid to adjust LCD brightness by Fn+F5.
