System Preferences --> Energy Saver. Click on Options and uncheck "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep"

Or for the light sensor dimming feature - (where the display adjusts to the ambient light):

System Preferences --> Displays --> "Uncheck "Automatically change display brightness as ambient light changes""

I dont have "options" listed in energy Saver... just "battery"; "power adapter"; "restore defaults" and "schedule"....

Where else can I find? The dimming is really bugging me

You go
System Preferences > Energy Saver
The drop down beside Optimization, click 'Custom'
It should automatically open 'Sleep' options. Just drag the slider to however you wish
