    This may be a dumb question but my new Macbook Pro display fades out after a few minutes of nonuse..Now I know there a way to set that "time out" period but for the life of me, I can't seem to find any information on it.

    You know when you're not doing anything and all of a sudden the screen goes to a light fade..then you touch the trackpad and it brightens up again..
    Mine seems to be set for a couple of minutes and i would like to lengthen that as it gets a bit annoying.

    Don't laugh...it's frustrating... :confused:
