When my Dell Vostro laptop is connected to the power, the screen is dimmed after 10 seconds. This is very annoying.
When my laptop is running on the battery, the screen is not dimmed after inactivity, this is what I want.
When I go to System settings → Screen, the Dim screen to disable power option is disabled.
How can I disable screen dimming after inactivity totally? I'm running 11.10.
When I create a new user account I don't have this problem. I have changed some settings with CompizConfig Settings Manager and with gconf, but I can't find timeout options for brightness.
