Thanks Lydia.

As far as fixing this,we have two ways we can go about it.. I can send you some steps that you will have to carry out on your own to try and repair the issue.

Or you cand I can connect during a screen sharing session, where I can fix this for you.

Expert:  Dustin replied 2 years ago.
I can send you messages here, Which then will go to your email.

What we want to do, is tell the computer to never dim the display... Whether its on battery or AC power, we want to set it to never dim the display.
