My setup for auto brightness is +2

Reaction time from dark into sunlight is almost immediately
Reaction time from sunlight into darker area takes almost forever. It takes almost complete darkness for the screen to go back!!

Normal or not??

Thanks for any reply.

I noticed that too - The screen get brighter in a matter of nanoseconds but when I am in a dark environment it takes a minute or two and sometimes it never turns the brightness down. Hope they'll fix that with an update or something soon.

Anyway, what I did to go past that is turning down the brightness and then setting it back to auto brightness when I am in a dark environment.

Check out Lux Auto Brightness. I can't live without it.
