[Bug 1313830] Re: [Lenovo ThinkPad X230] LCD Backlight dims completely when disconnecting external monitor


hi, @dlundquist , Dustin Lundquist, 
Did you test it on x230 with DisplayPort monitor?
Or it only existed when x230 is plugged with DVI on the dock?
Whether can following command change the brightness of LCD?

$ echo 100 | sudo tee /sys/class/bachlight/acpi_video0/brightness


$ echo 600 | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
