"What model of laptop? There is always a utility or driver for the laptop keyboard to make the specials keys work, check if you have the right one.

On most laptops, to adjust the display luminosity you have to hold Fn + one of these keys:

For you it's the Power Smart Utility (from Acer website) :

"Go to Power Options and you can change settings for a particular power plan.

There you can adjust the brightness for a given plan. I presume that your energy save button has the effect of changing the power plan."
