SubjectRe: i915 backlight
From
Hi,

With this setup, something has happened: in xorg, when screen goes to
screensaver and after, enters into Standby mode, when I press a key,
it keeps black and, to recover screen, I have to adjust brightness
manually (by increasing), as if it didn't remember previous value to
standby mode.

This was something that before didn't happen.
