  Laptop screen dims on logout

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  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.
