I just purchased a Macbook 2.2ghz with Leopard OS about a month ago and i'm new to Apple OS. I searched but couldn't really find the answer i was looking for. The problem is that i put a screen saver up and i want it to run for a while without the screen going to sleep or black.. Is there a setting where i can prevent the screen from going black after a while? It gets annoying that the display can't stay on.. i don't mind it going dim, but at least want it to stay on..
QUOTE Thanks

System Preferences > Energy Saver. Here it gives you an option for how much time for the display to sleep and the entire system to sleep. Just set both to never.
