i WANT the brightness to dim from inactivity if i'm on battery, but i also want it to return where i MANUALLY set it the moment i move my mouse, not some random preset default

and apparently that's too much to ask of linux

Show thread

it's 2022 and linux still can't remember where i left my brightness the moment it dims from 20 seconds of mouse inactivity
