How can I change power mamangement idle timers to less than 15 minutes?

Can someone please take a crack at this? It's a little confusing that power manager allows the display to be turned off after only 1 min of idle yet won't allow the brightness to be lowered until at least 15 minutes. I would like the brightness to be lowered (maybe 5 minutes) and then turn the display off after 15 min. Why can't all idle timers be set by the minute instead of those 15/30/etc min intervals?

you should download the latest Power Manager... i am not sure the brightness level control change prior to the screen shutdown.

I have the latest version 2.5. Still some settings, like lowering brightness, have discrete idle times that start at 15 minutes. It might be a a vista power management issue and in that case I still don't understand why some settingshave 15 minute interval options and some can be set to any number of minutes.

 

really i wouldn't mind being able to lower the brightness at even 1 minute idle when on battery power.
