    When i watch a youtube video or anything eles, my screen dims after about 1.5 mins... its annoying cuz i have to touch the track pad to wake from the dimming... and sometimes that touch on the touch on the track pad can accidently click on something and send me to a new video :S :eek: :mad:

    is there a way to set the dimming time?
    setting the sleep time doesnt seem to work...

    the only thing i can think of is to set screen sleep to never... which is
    even more annoying to have to do everytime i want to watch i video...

    any ideas?

    System Prefs >> Energy Saver >> Options >> Automatically reduce the brightness...

    This should disable automatic dimming of the screen after a certain time.
