It will because when you unplug the Power cable, it will automatically switch battery mode. When in battery mode it also activates a kind of Power saving mode by default. Thats why it seems dark. Now if still want to brightness then remove adjust the brightness level while the laptop is on Battery Mode but i must tell you, your battery backup won't last too long.
There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
Here are a couple of tips that I've collected that may address your problem.
Go to start>run>then
type in "cmd" without the quotes. this will bring up the command
prompt. next type in the following command: "shutdown -s" without the
quotes again. This should tell your system to shutdown your computer entirely. Next Try doing this. Hold down
"ctrl" and left click "shutdown". This skips some windows
XP shutdown procedure and should do the trick. And, finally http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=831431 You cannot log off, restart, or shut down
your Windows XP-based computerThis article talks about an
issue with Norton 2003 incompatibility.
Would appreciate any feedback as to which of these worked for you. Thanks much! Ron-
