    Screen stuck on Dim

    okay. im writing an app to try and to control the heater in my car.. im intending to make it work with software like media engine.. i downloaded the 1.7 source to have a poke then installed an ran media engine on my lappy..
    my dpi settings were at 125 (now fixed) but in the first time i ran ME i couldnt close it properly. so i ended the task in task manager. now my screen is stuck on dim and i dont know what control it has changed so i can revert it manualy.. opening and closing ME does nothing

    im sorry if this has been asked before but i did and didnt find anything
    thanks for any help

    Two things to check. First try clicking on the lower right corner, where it says Media Engine. That should manually dim and undim the screen. Second in the setting, under appearance, check to make sure "Automatically dim screen at night" is unchecked.
