I am using two monitors on my Windows XP machine. I generally work on one of them and keep an automatically updating window (like the console view of Eclipse or MS Visual Studio) on the other, and switch between the monitors from time to time. If the brightness of the inactive monitor is too high it distracts my attention.

Are there any applications which adjusts the brightness of the monitors automatically? I mean if the mouse cursor has been on the first monitor for 5 minutes, the brightness of the second monitor should gradually decrease and when I switch to the second monitor its brightness should increase back to the predefined level.
