    Using the MBP on the power adapter, how do I keep the display from automatically dimming?

    Do you mean after a few minutes of non use the screen dims? Only to return with a touch of the mouse or a button?

    its a bug. Apple has already acknowledged this. I believe that their workarounds do not work.

    Maybe "bug" wasnt the right word. It only affects Intel based laptops. Its been a "problem" or "issue" for a few months now..

    I've noticed this bug too - I can't believe they haven't fixed it yet! Especially since they've known about it for so long. It's really annoying, especially when watching YouTube videos!
