Might need application to fix dim display

For some reason my X display goes dim after I switch from X to a console and back. The only way that I know to restore it is to restart X, but that is unacceptable since I also have to restart all of my applications. Does anyone know why this happens and what I could do to fix it (or at least a way to restore it without shutting X down)? Perhaps there is an application that could fix it as well. Any suggestions on all of this?

Any help would be much appreciated as I have looked into this subject before with no results...

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
