powerd will definitely cause this -- it's almost certainly
correlated with wake-on-wlan. (i've just been sitting in a
meeting, with an IRC client running, watching this effect.) i've
fixed it so the screen no longer undims on a wlan wakeup, and
it's much less jarring, visually. it'll be in the next release.
