Updated gnome-power-manager packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
GNOME Power Manager is a session daemon for the GNOME desktop environment which allows users to manage power settings on their laptop or desktop system.
- When the power saving features (reduce backlight brightness and dim display when idle) were enabled for the "on battery power" mode and the brightness was adjusted manually, then leaving the laptop idle caused it to forget custom brightness settings. Currently, the "dim display when idle" functionality is disabled by default and laptops remember custom brightness settings.
Users of gnome-power-manager are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
