Set screen power-save dim timeout in Fedora 16+

I cannot believe I use Fedora with the default ten seconds screen dimming for almost two years now. When running on battery, this is very annoying. I need to think more than 10 seconds during coding, and this is driving me crazy.

So I found a nice little post about this and sharing. To determine your value just run:


$ gsettings get org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time
10

To set it to lets say reasonable thirty seconds, just do this:

$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time 30

Again, this is not out of my head. Thanks!
