my sys. toshiba satellite L775 laptop, i3, 6GB, intel HD3000 . iatkos 10.8.3 ML3U

wierd one this. when i boot into OSX all is working fine, except my laptop LCD display is at about 70% brightness. i had to install a sleep kext to get sleep working, and when i did it somehow enabled the brightness slider in display settings (which wasn't there on the initial OS install). with the slider up full, its not really at "full", but more like around 70%.

so...when i put OSX to sleep and then wake it ,the screen is at 100% brightness where i want it to be...

but how do i get it at full brightness when the OS has booted? don't wanna have to put it to sleep everytime to get the brightness to kick in...

thanks in advance!
