    Screen dims when clicking scroll wheel
    Hey everyone. I just bought the new aluminum Macbook and I'm having a weird issue.

    I am using a logitech wireless USB mouse. I have installed no software with this. Just plugged them in and started using it. The scroll wheel on this mouse can be clicked to the left and right. Whenever I click the wheel to either direction, it dims the screen on my Mac by 2 notches.

    How do I disable this?

    I have contacted Apple Care, and they have no resolution for me. I'm assuming there's Mouse Keybinding settings somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it.

    Any help would be awesome. Thanks

    It might be worth seeing if you can get some software for your mouse as that normally offers some configurations changes.

    Download the logitech control utility or a 3rd party mouse configuration utility (steermouse / USBOverdriveX) and reassign the tilt-functions to something else.
