Have you looked at the "power management" in control center, there is "Dim display when idle" option, maybe it is active?

Brightness can be controlled using mouse scroll up and down at "power/batter applet". Checkout whether it is working or not !

That laptop is pretty new. Linux might not know how to control the brightness, since it supposed to be automatic using the sensor.

Moderator note: two threads merged, because they cover different parts of the same problem. For future reference, it's better to keep them together.
