    Hello,
    I've got a 2010 i7 15.4 MBP, after installing boot camp drivers from MAC OS DVD, I could not find any option about how long to dim screen brightness. However, my friend's 13.3 MBP does have. What about yours, guys?

    Click on the battery symbol in the notification area, then click 'advanced'

    This should bring you to the screen that enables you choose what your computer does in certain situations, in one of the options on the left it should let you create a power profile that lets you change everything to suit you, I know its in there somewhere, because when on 'balanced' my screen dims after 5 minutes.

    Ok, refined version.

    1. Click the battery icon.

    2. Click 'More Power Options'

    3. On the left, click 'Choose when to turn off the display'


    On this window, you can change multiple settings.

    After you've changed the settings, save the configuration into a custom power plan, and ensure your computer is running the power plan.

    This goes for me as well, the actual dimmer in the pic above doesnt do anything.
