    Is there a way on the older MacBooks to make the display fade down to the low setting before it sleeps? On my Pro right now, it just snaps down.
    Does anyone know of an application or something?
    Thanks!

    System Preferences > Energy Saver > Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep is not available?

    Oh, I'm sorry - I'm being really unclear. I have that option turned on, but when it goes down, it just snaps down. The newer Macs fade to the lower setting rather than just snapping down.

    It's the model just before the new unibody systems. It's running the latest version of Snow Leopard.

    Maybe repair your permissions?

    That's my default solution for everything. :rolleyes:
