Shades is a utility for controlling the brightness of your screen. It runs in the background providing easy control over the brightness of your display via a slick Mac-like interface, with greater dynamic range and finer granularity than the built-in controls.

Unlike other solutions, Shades works by obscuring your screen with a darkened overlay. It doesn't change your display settings and won't screw up your colour profile. It also means you won't lose your cursor!

It's useless because it still eats battery anyway, even when you low down your brightness...

can you explaine ? more detail ?

one way to adjust the brightness on laptop, is at boot stage, adjust the screen brightness,
since the funtion keys still work .

so there is a difference in battery life, when only adjusting it with shades ?
thought, the processor uses most of the battery power, and if the screen is dimmed,
it uses less ?

It's useless because it still eats battery anyway, even when you low down your brightness...

Useless means what useless means lol

Ok i repeat again : Shades won't save you ANY battery life, it's just for cosmetic use.
