To turn this feature off do the following...
- Open ThinkVantage Power Manager
- Make sure you switch to "Advance View"
- On the Power Scheme tab
- On the Left side click "Power Source Optimized"
- Under "Idle Timers" click to expand
- Where it says "Lower Display Brightness" Choose Never
- Click Apply

- Click the Global Power Settings Tab
- Under Dynamic Brightness Control
- Make sure that all checkboxes are unchecked

This should turn off the dimming you are refering too.

If you do not have Power Manager installed or do not have the latest version I would recommend downloading and running ThinkVantage System Update. There you will be able to download the correct Power Manager program for your model of ThinkPAD.

Hope this helps


Thanks. I followed the link you sent,downloaded the system update for windows 7 and restarted my computer.
Then I clicked ThinkVantage button but nothing happens. Do you know what to do?
