If you’ve ever been watching a cutscene on Xbox One or Xbox Series X & S, you’ve no doubt encountered a slightly annoying problem: the screen going dim as the console thinks you’re no longer player, meaning that you have to keep flicking a stick to remind it that you’re active. It’s a bit of a hindrance, but it’s also quite the easy fix.
To turn off screen dimming on your Xbox, simply go to Settings > Preferences > Idle Options.
Then, on the option on the right, set the timer until 60 minutes.
This setting applies to both the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and all forms of the Xbox One.
While you can’t actually outright disable screen dimming on Xbox, it’s very unlikely that you will be watching cutscenes for that long without touching the controller. Not even the Metal Gear Solid games have cutscenes that are that long.
