Yes, you can change the setting to make your computer NOT DIM while running on battery power.

1. click on start

2. in "search box" type this-- power options. You should now see this option

appear with other items that your search has found. You will click on the that

option (power options) and this will take you to where you can change the

power plan for running your computer on battery power.

3. (My power plan is set on HP Recommended but which ever your plan is set on

you can still change the laptop setting to NOT DIM while operating on battery

power.) Look to the right of your power plan and you will see Change Plan

Settings. Click on Change Plan Settings.

4. You will see Dim The Display. This is where you can make choices for dimming

or not dimming the display for "on battery" or "plugged in." Click on drop

down arrow and choose the NEVER setting. (I have chosen NEVER for both

"on battery" and "plugged in."

Notice that from here you can change the setting for the brightness of your display, set when to turn off the display and set when to put your computer to sleep for both when your computer is running off the battery or when it is plugged in.
