I did a fresh install of Fedora 17 on my Sony laptop. Aside from a one or two other issues, the one thing I noticed going from Fedora 16 to 17 is that my brightness controls no longer work to adjust screen brightness and my screen doesn't dim when on battery. I am running it with the nouveau driver.

Is there a work around or should I just wait for an update to correct the behavior?
