    is there any way to keep this from happening?

    I dont know if this thread is serious or not but you can go to ys pref>Energy saver>option. I dont know how you could of miss this if you looked "everywhere".

    obviously did so, and it still dims on every power source.

    that isn't the dimming he's talking about. that means if you want it to automatically go to say half brightness when you are on battery power.

    he means how it goes dim after like 2 minutes of not touching the keyboard / mouse..

    :o

  8. That is the "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep" option. Just uncheck it.

    Try Jolt.

    Jolt is a useful app that solves a basic problem. If you’ve ever wanted your display to stay on full power for just a few minutes, Jolt is for you. Simply click the Jolt icon and your system will stay on for a few minutes. After the time you’ve specified is over your mac returns to normal operation so that your battery doesn’t drain and you don’t have to fiddle with energy settings. Easily watch YouTube videos without moving your mouse every minute, deliver presentations without a blank screen showing up, or take your time reading a page without having to touch your mac.
