The problem I am facing is that when Windows is idle for some time, instead of dimming the screen, it turns on full brightness. I know this may be problem in power configuration somewhere but I cannot seem to find it.

UPDATE: I use a Sony VAIO VPCS116FA, Windows 8 Pro and I have installed latest NVIDIA drivers.

More information is required. What brand of laptop? Have you installed Windows 8 compatible drivers? – Ramhound Nov 15 '12 at 22:46

Are those the drivers from the nVidia website, or via Windows Update? – Rowland Shaw Nov 16 '12 at 9:59
Sony VAIO support site. – Waqar Hameed Nov 16 '12 at 18:33
