I was quite frustrated when my Alienware 17 R2 (2015, Intel HD Graphic 4600, NVidia GTX 980M) auto goes dimming everytime. When I browsed the bright webpage or apps, the brightness goes 100%; however, when I work on dark webpage or apps like Steam, it auto dims to 25% or 0%. I tried all of these methods but they seem don't work for me:
1. Adaptive Brightness in Power Management: Turn off
2. Control Panel --> Services --> Disabled Intel Dynamic Application Loader Host
3. Intel HD Graphic Control Panel --> Disabled Extended Battery & Display Power Saving Technology
4. Drivers of NVidia already updated.
5. Laptop is always plugged in, no concern about power source.
Anything else I can do for this? Please help since it's quite annoying and I've got some headache with that.
Thanks so much in advance.

Also, on windows 10, if this occurs on your alienware 17 R5, it could be your (tobii) eye-tracking:
windows > tobii core > interactions > power > dim brightness = off
Sir, Ive got the same dimming problem on my aw15r4 and I don't know how to solve it. I don't have the tobii eye tracking system neither the alienfx. What can I do, Sr.? Thanks in advance.
I am on an Aurora R5 and this did not help. Still goes dark after awhile. It is frustrating but I am sure it is a Windows setting somewhere. Continuing to look.
Mate, dont known if it helps but I solved my problem swapping the panel in my 15r4, I know it's a laptop, but you could try connecting you Aurora to another monitor or TV and discard if it's a windows setting problem, if not, its maybe inside your monitor.
