Stop screen automatically dimming

Wed Jan 13, 2021 12:06 am
I'm watching videos and the screen automatically dims (not locks). This seem unrelated to any of the energy saving settings which I've configured to give minimal interruption to what I'm doing. It happens when I'm using AC power with Screen Brightness, Dim Screen, Screen Energy Saving and Suspend session all deselected.

Any thoughts?

Currently running Kubuntu 20.10, Plasma 5.19.5, Frameworks 5.74.0, Qt 5.14.2, kernel 5.8.0-44, AMD RENOiR Graphics
FWIW: it is always useful to state the exact Plasma version and distribution when asking questions, makes it easier for us to help ...

Sorry, it was a bit uninformative. Anyway, it seems to have fixed itself. Thanks.
