Would love for the screen light to dim after a short while of inactivity and come back to bright when I press a key. Microsoft have decided to remove the entry in Power Settings for some reason. Any ideas? I read Tim’s article http://www.lovemysurface.net/turn-off-the-screen-on-surface-tablets/ which blanks the screen completely. Not sure if this works for SP4 on Win10?

You can set it from Never – 1 minute. Good luck!
