Hey Guys,
2 things. First of all, just saying hey, from the proud new owner of a 13' MBP.
Second, I have a problem with the screen dimming function, or rather the lack thereof. Basically what happens is when I don't touch the laptop for like, 1 min, the screen automatically dims, and I don't want it to do that. This is different from the screen going to sleep, for which I've managed to change under "energy saver" in system preferences.
Any pointers?
Cheers
QUOTE Thanks

Yep, turn off "Automatically reduce brightness before display goes to sleep" in the Energy Saver system preference pane.

Under the Energy Saver in System Preferences remove the check mark in the box that states: "Automatically Reduce Brightness before Display goes to Sleep."

Guess I'm too slow at typing. McYukon is faster. (Probably the way he stays warm up there.)
