Always be 100% bright when I'm using battery

It would seem that one would go to the power settings, and adjust the amount of time before the screen becomes dim, but unlike the nice images displayed in Always be 100% bright when I'm using battery, my power settings have no options for the length of time until the screen dims.

Here's what my power settings look like:

How can I prevent the 10-seconding dimming screen, when on battery power?
