Display dim when coming back from console

I am using Slackware 10.1 with KDE 3.3 on a Sony Vaio PCG-F180.

When I startup into KDE, everything is fine. When I switch to a console, it's fine, when I switch back to KDE (term 7) the display is really really dim. When I switch to the console again, it's normal, but back again to KDE, it's dim. WHY ME????

I've had the same problem and honestly don't know why it happens. I run mine on a TP 600E and I wonder if the problem has to do with my APM not working correctly. It's annoying, but not completely fatal. Perhaps I'll delve more into it when I have more time....good luck with yours as well...

I've noticed that if I end the session and go back to the KDM login screen, it corrects itself and works fine. Still on the hunt for a solution. When this problem first showed up I was using Slackware 10.1. Now I am using 10.2, and it still exists.
