How come my MBP dims one notch every now and then?

Hey guys,

Now i know what some of you are thinking and i am not talking about the dramatic dim of the display (about 3 or so notches) before it goes to sleep. I activated caffine app and somehow my MBP is pretty sneaky in that it automatically dims one notch whenever i used it for every 30 min. or so. I unchecked the "automatically dim brightness" before sleep in the system preferences. Anyone know anything about this?

It has a light sensor. When it gets dark the display dims, when it gets bright the display brightens.

Ahhhh that makes sense. I thought my MBP was trying to be sneaky in saving energy and dimming the screen hoping I don't realize the difference :). Thanks man

You can turn this often under the system preferences. May save some battery life for ya.
