Thread: Screen dims.....
10-09-2008, 02:33 PM #1Screen dims.....
So I'm watching this interactive video from the BBC and after a short period, the screen dims. Moving the mouse restores it to its former brightness.
How can I prevent it happening in the first place?

I've done the un-ticking thing, but the screen still dims. I'm using an Intel iMac, and the problem is that the screen dims after a period (I have not timed it), but it's a nuisance and the only way is to move the mouse to restore it back to normal....
Can anyone offer a possible solution, please?

That's the place - make sure you've unchecked the right one.
'Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep.'I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I had un-ticked the wrong one. It's my age, y'know....
Hopefully, it'll now behave itself.
Thanks again M

you can try a free app called caffeine. It stops your screen from dimming while it's enabled.shameless plug for my blog
