    I usually have my Air at full brightness. I notice after a while if I leave it alone the screen dims a bit. If I move the mouse it is slightly dimmer and I have to manually adjust the display back to full brightness. Is there a setting turn this off? I have automatically reduce brightness of display before sleep turned off for both the battery and power adapter setting.

    What do your Energy Saver prefs look like?

    I have the same problem here! Did you ever manage to find a solution?

    Depending on your MBA model you may have a Ambient-Light-Sensor that can be turned off under Preferences > Displays.

    Hi Lord Appleseed, Unfortunately I don't see it there. I have a new 2010 Macbook Air 11". Any more ideas?

    Hi again, yes I do see the adjustable brightness bar. I just don't have the button below it for turning off the ambient light sensor (which I do see on my mid 09 macbook pro 17").

    The 2010 MBA doesn't have an ambient light sensor.

    My iMac does this, it seems like a power setting. I haven't found it to be an issue, though.
