    Brightness Control on HP Pavillion 5385

    I can't help much but I'm pretty sure it's to do with ACPI.

    ( That is, you need it.)

    You should take a look at the Omnibook module (it's not just for Omnibooks, but for laptops that are really made by Compal, e.g., HP, some Toshiba Satellites, Acers. While I understand that the new HP's will be Compaq's, if it is a pre-merger HP laptop, the Omnibook module should work wonders for power management, buttons, etc. It is available on sourceforge: sourceforge.net/projects/omke/

    Hope that helps.
