10.3: Understanding PowerBook screen dimming timing
Authored by: uurf on Dec 08, '03 02:28:24PM
you can set dimming directly using:
pmset
pmset -g
retrieves the current values, and
sudo pmset -c dim 0
claims to turn off dimming. I haven't had luck turning dimming off, but at least you can set it to something other than the default 50%. Of course
man pmset
for all the details.

10.3: Understanding PowerBook screen dimming timing
Authored by: sfn on Dec 08, '03 09:07:01PM

'dim' in pmset refers to 'Display Sleep' in Energy Saver.

The 'Dimming' in Energy Saver refers to the slight reduction in screen brightness that occurs on laptops and seems to be fixed at 50% of Sleep (or dim in pmset).
