It looks to me that DimScreen written by Skrommel does not lower down the screen Brightness, but does some other magic instead.

So I suggest:
In Windows 7, you can go to "Adjust screen brightness" and modify the screen brightness without a need of fn keys.

There exists a Backlight Control Interface:
http://msdn.microsoft.com...rary/aa372656(VS.85).aspx

There exists VB.NET example:
http://www.dreamincode.ne...b/index.php?showentry=596

Would it be possible to implement it into AHK? If not then I will try to do my best to code it using C#, F# or anything else, so there would be an option to adjust a real LCD brightness Thmbsup But I must warn you that I have a zero experience with Windows API!

Best regards,
Oldrich

PS: One additional idea: zero brightness = turned off LCD screen

I have implemented it by myself. You can download it here:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4...ghtness/LcdBrightness.zip

Run "Din.exe param" to increase brightness by "param"
example "Din.exe 10" or "Din.exe -15"

Run lcd.exe (lcd.ahk)
Hold win+scroll to increase decrease brightness
hit win+1 to go to stand by

Here is the sourceCode of the Din.exe
