Automatically Dim Your PC Screen In The Evening
If you use a Windows PC at home, whether desktop or laptop, you probably use
it throughout the daytime and into the evening.
While the screen brightness you configure for use during the daytime is
probably just fine, there’s also a good chance that it’s too
bright for the evening, when ambient lighting (ie, around you) is much
dimmer and of a different “colour temperature”. That is to
say, it’s probably more yellowy and less bluey. Which means that, when you
do finally go to bed, the additional blue light you’ve
been seeing during the evening could keep you awake and prevent you from
sleeping as soundly as you might otherwise have
done so.
To the rescue of all night-owls comes a program called Sunset Screen. At
pre-determined times (sunset generally, though you
can change it), it automatically dims your screen and changes the colour
temperature too. The author claims that the program is
preferable to the better-known f.lux utility because the timings are more
flexible and because there’s a greater range of colours
available.
Sunset Screen is free, and the download is less than 1M. You’ll find it at
http://www.skytopia.com/software/sunsetscreen/
and it’s
also available as a portable version if you prefer. The program is
malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.
If you haven’t tried F.lux, and you’d like to experiment with that program
too, you’ll find details
