SYSTEMD-BACKLIGHT@.SERVICE(8) systemd-backlight@.service SYSTEMD-BACKLIGHT@.SERVICE(8)

NAME

systemd-backlight@.service, systemd-backlight - Load and save the display backlight brightness at boot and shutdown

SYNOPSIS

systemd-backlight@.service

/lib/systemd/systemd-backlight

DESCRIPTION

systemd-backlight@.service is a service that restores the display backlight brightness at early boot and saves it at shutdown. On disk, the backlight brightness is stored in /var/lib/systemd/backlight/. During loading, if the udev property ID_BACKLIGHT_CLAMP is not set to false, the brightness is clamped to a value of at least 1 or 5% of maximum brightness, whichever is greater. This restriction will be removed when the kernel allows user space to reliably set a brightness value which does not turn off the display.

KERNEL COMMAND LINE

systemd-backlight understands the following kernel command line parameter:

systemd.restore_state=

Takes a boolean argument. Defaults to "1". If "0", does not restore the backlight settings on boot. However, settings will still be stored on shutdown.
