    The one about added the dim time in? Ya, it works.

    I was going to post about that plist hack along time ago but I just then saw a thread on it already and I was sad

    1. Go to /Applications/Preferences.app/General.plist
    2. Find this in all that:


    Code:
    <array>
                    <string>1_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>2_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>3_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>4_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>5_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>NEVER</string>
                </array>
                <key>validValues</key>
                <array>
                    <integer>60</integer>
                    <integer>120</integer>
                    <integer>180</integer>
                    <integer>240</integer>
                    <integer>300</integer>
                    <integer>-1</integer>
    
    3. Add in <string>10_SECONDS</string> and <integer>10</integer>
    4. And you should get this:


    Code:
    <array>
     
                    <string>10_SECONDS</string>              
                    <string>1_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>2_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>3_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>4_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>5_MINUTES</string>
                    <string>NEVER</string>
                </array>
                <key>validValues</key>
                <array>
                    <integer>10</integer>
                    <integer>60</integer>
                    <integer>120</integer>
                    <integer>180</integer>
                    <integer>240</integer>
                    <integer>300</integer>
                    <integer>-1</integer>
