Public bug reported:

This feature worked fine in 11.04. Now, if I leave my screen for a couple of 
minutes it dims.  When I press a key, it only brightens a little bit. I can 
hardly see what I'm typing right now.
Before the first such dimming, using the brightness keys works fine to control 
brightness. AFter the first screensave, they don't work.

The laptop is plugged in.

When I press a key after it's gone into powersaving/screensaving mode, the 
screen should rebrighten.
Also, the controls for brightness should continue to work.
