I am new to Mac and purchased a MBP one month ago. While i am using my mac with charger. Sometime the bright of the mac's screen is auto adjust like from bright to a little dark and sometime from dark to brighter.

Sorry if I asked a silly quesion but I would like to know that is it something wrong with my MBP or the MBP is made like that?

Thank you

MBP 2,4ghz core 2 duo
2gb 667 ddr2 sdram

15'' widescreen display

nope. To correct go into system prefs > displays> and check/uncheck the box at the bottom that says ambient light sensor. it is a normal power-saver feature.

Agreed - this is the first feature of the laptop I turned off. Nice idea iF you have small hands that never cover the sensors... otherwise the screen is all over the place.
