    When I dim my display (36% more pixel version) there is still faint picture in the very centre. I am taking my macbook in, in maybe 30 days to get one of my keys fixed. Is anyone else experiencing this. You have to look at it from various angles till your eyes pick up the picture.

    This is normal. Dimming the display doesn't remove the image because it only turns off the backlight.

    ...unless I've misunderstood you. For reference, pressing control + shift + eject simultaneously will sleep the entire screen while keeping the computer active.

    The backlighting is actually off, but the LCD stays on until the machine is off or sleeping. The backlighting only illuminates the LCD display and the LCD alone consumes significantly less power.

    Any way to make it not lock?

    When you disable the screen? System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General tab > Require password [time] after sleep or screen saver begins. Change that to what you want.
