    On wireless, the screen of my brand new Acer 5733 keeps dimming down, no matter what I set the brightness level on Fn+ F3. Seems OK with mains connection, although flickers when connected. help appreciated

    There`s probably a timer dimming the display to save power and I`m sure a bit of digging around in the power options will find the setting.

    JennyJackson01 is correct that is normal on a laptop. The flickering while connected may be a seperate issue though.
