Ubuntu Mate Brightness issue - looking for a hack or workaround

Hi all,

I’m running Ubuntu Mate 19.10 Beta.
Everything is going good except I have one annoying issue that’s driving me crazy.

I wonder if anyone can help me with a hack or fix.

Ok so I’ve set my brightness to 5%. This saves no issues. Can shutdown and reboot and all is good.
My problem is that when the screen dims after ten minutes and I resume working by tapping a key or moving touchpad the screen is 100 brightness and I have to use fn key + z to bring it all the way down again.

I would like it to simply stay at 5 percent.

I’m very grateful of you can help me out. Reason for such low brightness is to have longer battery time when out.

Thanks.
