I just started using my go gear and the battery life is quite short. It seems that the display screen is quite bright even after it dims down. I believe that this is chewing up the battery life. The bar for the battery goes down really fast.

Re: short battery life
Get a replacement from Philips if it seems abnormal and you are still under warranty. 8-9 hours is normal battery life for this unit - the product specs are "ideal" - not relaistic. No way to dim this unit.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

not sure about that one but there is a dimmer wheel by the light switch. move it up and down to dim and brighten the dask lights/cluster. wheel may need replacing. also work the lights on and off switch manually to see if there every thing works smooth or hopes from dim to brite.
Normally the screen will dim when you UNPLUG the power cord. Is that what you are experiencing?
That is quite normal and is a feature designed to lengthen battery life when the machine is not connected to mains power.
In any case you can adjust the screen brightness. To do this you should be able to use the function keys together with the Fn button. You should find two function keys (along the top of the keyboard) that have symbos like a sun and a Plus sign and a Minus sign on them. Press the Fn key (bottom left on the keyboard probably) and then tap the 'sun +' key to brighten the screen.
Hope this helps. If not, please respond with a comment and I will give further details.
This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.
If its running on batteries the screen brightness will dim quite a bit. If on AC adapter it should be full brightness, but this is adjustable in either case. With the computer up and running, press and hold down the Fn key and push the up arrow to make it brighter and the down arrow to make it dimer.
I am assuming this is on your laptop display and not a monitor connected. If this is the case, you most likely pressed FN + the DOWN ARROW. You can use the FN key (usually on the left side near CTRL and/or ALT) in combination with the UP and DOWN arrows to increase/decrease the brightness. This is real handy when you want to have longer battery life as the lower the display brightness is the less power it uses.
This happened to me, too, when I replaced the battery. Turns out one of the wires that affects the brightness came loose. I found the loose wire, touched it to a few places where I thought it should go, and one of them caused the screen to come on to full bright.
I was extremely nervous dealing with this - never soldered in such tight quarters before, but once I soldered it down, the problem was solved. I have other problems with my ique - like extremely limited battery life - but the brightness problem is solved.
