I always have the Auto-Brghtness on my iPod Touch to off as I prefer to have my screen always on 90% brightness. My laptop, I have to adjust manually as there are no light sensors. I usually dim it from 90% to 70% brightness when I'm sitting in a very dark room to reduce eye-strain.

Interesting stuff. I notice that my Droid 1, sometimes stays a bit too dim and other times it stays bright when it shouldn't.
Thanks for bringing attention to this.

Thanks for the tip.  I turned off auto-brightness and sure enough, the phone was running brighter then my setting.  Should save even more battery life now.
