I logged out of MATE and back into Cinn . . . no difference. I restarted, and lately there has been a message about "broken pipe, could not write bytes" each time I log out of a session. I restarted into OSX and the brightness is again normal . . . . Any further thoughts?

Is the screen dim on the login screen too, or just in the DE? You could check if it's dim in another virtual console. Use [CTRL]+[ALT]+[F2] (or whatever the equivalent is on Macintosh) to switch. To go back to the graphical console, use F7 or F8 instead. I don't recall which one it is.
