    Default Laptop screen brightness

    Took me about an hour to figure this out ... i know im slow

    Just do fn "function" F8 and fn F7 to make it dimmer.

    Also if you hold ctrl alt and tap F8 twice it will go to a all black screen ... then ctrl alt F7 to bring it back ... pretty nifty shoulder surfing feature =]

    You can also log out to just a bash prompt by doing ctrl alt backspace.

    I just wish the ctrl c and ctrl v worked for copy and paste as i used those the most .. shift + insert is just to damn far away and requires 2 hands =[
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    Umm, when I hit fn+F8 my screen turns off. Since that's the button that switches between the lcd and the external vga port. It really depends on your laptop to what the fn keys do....
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
