What exactly are the default settings, which is what I'm using. Does the default setting give you the highest level using A/C power? I know the screen dims on battery, and that I can go into "Access IBM", where there is only one adjustment for brightness on battery (normal or high) ; there's no adjustment for when notebook is plugged in.
I see the keyboard arrows (up on the Home key and down on the End key), for adjusting brightness, but I'm looking for a settings panel that tells me what setting I'm on and allows me to change it, which I can't find.
Thanks for any assistance with this.

If you do not see the green battery icon, go to Start > All Programs > Access IBM > Battery MaxiMiser Wizard. When you launch the wizard, there is a page with a checkbox for putting the battery icon in the system tray.
Thanks for any additional information you can provide on this.
On that dialog box, there are 2 small icons, side by side on the bottom right - these icons are battery on the left and AC plug on the right. The left icon is for the battery settings and that is what is what is displayed when you first open "View Scheme Settings". Click on the small AC plug icon on the right to see the AC settings. Click on the small battery icon on the left to see the battery settings again. When you create a Scheme in Battery MaxiMiser, you can adjust all the settings for when on AC power as well as when on battery power.I wrote:Left-click on the green battery icon and choose to View Scheme Settings. When the box opens up it will show you the battery settings for the Scheme you are currently using. Click on the little AC Plug icon on the lower right, then you will see the current settings for AC power.

Rules of the road
I'm actually perfectly satisfied with the default settings and schemes available.
And thanks also Gator -- that was very helpful and is actually what I was looking for, how to see what level I'm on. I pressed Fn-Home, and green bars showed on the bottom of the screen, showing I was on level 7, the maximum, which is right where I want to be.
Thanks again to everyone who posted and helped. There's so much information and flexibility available with a Thinkpad, if only you know how to access it. I did actually look through the T42 documentation available from Lenovo before posting here, but was not able to access the information you guys were able to provide.
