    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
