rMBP power settings
I'm new to mac so i guess this will be a stupid questions.
I have been looking for power settings in mac os x and found very little options. I basically want the following:
when on charger :
leave keyboard lighting always on at maximum brightness
display brightness at about 80%
when on battery :
set keyboard lighting to a minimum and set it dark when not used for x seconds (this option is prominent, but it seems the option is always the same, whether the battery is charging or not.
set display brightness to 50%.
i know i can change this manually every time i'm switching power source, but for a OS this handy, this option should be somewhere no?
So far i am VERY happy with my 15 inch macbook pro retina
Thanks for helping the mac noob!

There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.
The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
