Why does my screen go dark as soon as the sun sets?

I see the screen just fine in the daytime. But when the sun sets, the picture gets so dark that I can hardly see it: no facial or clothing details. I have the brightess set at about 70%. I'm also frustrated with most of the techno-toy features, but I supposed it's a long learning curve.

Answer: 
The TV is automatically set to dim when the lighting inside of the room goes dark. To change the setting, you can go to settings and from there you change the Energy Saving to something other than auto--I keep mine set to Low so it doesn't dim so much at night.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. It is recommended to check the PICTURE menu for the ENERGY SAVING options. Turn this feature off.

Would I need to purchase a separate WiFi dongle to use the internet capabilities of this television or is a wifi adapter built into the set? I am finding mixed reviews online about this!

We appreciate your interest in our products. These 2012 model televisions will only allow USB keyboards to be fully compatible in the web browser. Some of the apps will have limited support. A mouse will not be supported. We cannot guarantee the operation of a wireless keyboard.
