/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-backlight load [backlight|leds]:DEVICE
systemd-backlight@.service is a service that restores the display backlight brightness at early boot and saves it at shutdown. On disk, the backlight brightness is stored in /var/lib/systemd/backlight/. During loading, if the udev property ID_BACKLIGHT_CLAMP is not set to false, the brightness is clamped to a value of at least 1 or 5% of maximum brightness, whichever is greater. This restriction will be removed when the kernel allows user space to reliably set a brightness value which does not turn off the display.
