Even when plugged in, the macbook screen has a time delay to dim the screen. It's not usually a big deal, but I do a slew of reading / research on the internet and the dimming when I'm filtering through lots of material can get annoying.

Does anyone know how to turn off this dimming feature? I looked in energy saver and didn't see it, and browsed around a bit and couldn't find anything either.

Thanks for all your help in advance.

System Preferences -> Energy Saver -> Options

Uncheck the box to dim the screen before going to sleep
