[Bug 1384515] [NEW] Laptop screen dims on logout


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

After upgrading my laptop from Trusty to the Utopic final image, I
noticed that when I logged out or switched users, the screen would dim.
After logging back in, the brightness would not get restored.   The
Display Brightness slider in the Power Manager Plugin still showed full
brightness, but it obviously was not.  I had to click twice on the
slider to restore the screen to full brightness.

I then did a clean install and had the same issue.

Similar to bug #1302025, but this is not due to inactivity.
