Kindle Paperwhite loses brightness

Now and again my Kindle Paperwhite will turn down the screen brightness of its own accord. This never happens when it's in use, but, for example,  if I shut the Kindle overnight and open up the next morning the brightness will have been turned down. Sometimes it's turned so low that I can barely see the options to select to turn the brightness back up.

Any ideas?

I always make a point of completely signing-out before closing. Beside anything else, saves battery power. Perhaps the decreasing brightness is the Kindle's automatic way of trying to save power. Regards, T. R.

Thank you for the reply. As I wrote my post I thought, "It may be that I@m only shutting the cover and not powering off. I've started powering off now and it doesn't seem to have done it. I'll keep a keen watch and report back.

Thanks again!

Good. Always frustrating when things do not seem to work properly.
