Display brightness

The default display brightness is configured as a power policy setting with separate on-battery and plugged-in brightness levels.

This setting, referred to as display brightness, is described in Table 1 Display brightness setting. Each time the user changes the display brightness through the UI sliders or brightness hot keys, the display brightness policy setting is updated for the current power source (such as on-battery) and power plan (such as balanced).
