I am your savior
To bring up the display brightness panel directly (on the i920, at least), create a shortcut with "\windows\setting_t.exe /sc_br" as the execution string.
As a general method for figuring this out, here's the procedure I use:
1. Go to the settings page you're interested in.
2. Hit the phone hangup/power button to get back to the shell; the settings page/app is still running, just in the background.
3. With FDC TaskManager, examine the process list for the running process that is hosting the settings page. No magic here -- you've got to figure it out yourself, but it's usually obvious. I explicitly mention FDC TM because it gives the command like parameters that the process was started with, which is critical; settings_t hosts a lot of different pages, so you need to know the command line parameter to start it with to get the right page
4. Make a shortcut as appropriate
I've done this for a lot of settings pages, and have a page of these shortcuts on my SPB MS3 lifestyle pageset. Saves a lot of time. Note that "setting_t.exe" is not the catch-all for settings on the 920 -- there's also setting_a.exe and a bunch of others. You need to follow the above procedure to figure out what's what to make the shortcuts.
Note, however, that some of the pages can't be invoked directly, at least according to my discovery method. A few pages are a level down from the toplevel page invoked through the method above. For example, can't get directly to the "Assign a Program" buttons page, but can get directly to the "Buttons" page, with three choices from there (Assign, Wakeup, and X button).
