    I'm sure this has been posted, couldn't find. I just got a MacPro. How do I turn off the automatic fade that occurs when watching movies or when letting my MacPro idle for a few minutes?

    un-tick "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep" in the Options tab in the Energy Saver preferences.

    Check out Caffeine too, great little app that will do what you wish, plus prevent screen savers and sleeping all together.
