not the brightest bulb in the monitor

My iMac is doing something weird with brightness. It's not showing up at full brightness except every once in a while for a second after the display has slept.

My screen seemed dim and I keep going in to turn in the brightness but it's at full brightness according to the display options. I noticed this when I came back from display sleep; the screen is bright for a moment and then it dims back down, making it sort of flash a bit.
The iMac is from 2009, so it's not this issue
. I'd think that the monitor itself had just dimmed over time if it weren't for the brightness it displays after coming back from display sleep.
