I'm not sure if this is a problem being caused by Windows 8, the asus power-management programs, or what. Whenever my screen is displaying something darker, specifically the Steam client or in games/movies/other media, the screen dims, and when i go back to a brighter program like skype or firefox, it brightens.
I have disabled adaptive brightness multiple times, and it claims to be off. My power plan should have the screen remaining at 100% brightness all the time, and it doesn't put itself to sleep or anything. It's only when my screen attempts to display darker colors, it also dims.
It's becoming a problem in games with bright flashes because the entire screen will brighten and dim back and forth repeatedly.
Is there a setting I have missed?
