I've looked everywhere and all i can see is an option to turn off adaptive brightness, but i don't have it. For example, if i made my desktop a solid black colour, then switched to a white one, my screen would be dimmed, and would slowly become lighter. I can edit my brightness manually, but this is really annoying.

 

It sets it's own brightness depending on the brightness of the in focus window.

 

How the hell do i fix this.

Information on what machine you are using would be most helpful.

 

If it is a built machine system board and video card information would be useful.

So you don't have the settings for disabling shown here? (scroll down a bit)

fixed by going into my intel graphics settings>power options and disabling a power saving option. Apparently the problem was power saving!
