Not quite sure what this means -- do you mean the dimming itself should
take longer, or that it should be happening earlier than it does?

Yeah.  The first two numbers in /etc/ohm/plugins.d/timeouts.ini are
the timeouts for beginning dimming and hitting suspend.  I don't have
an option for how long the dim itself takes to happen (but could add
one).  I've changed the downwards dim from 25ms * 6 to 35ms * 6 for
the next build, and removed the dim altogether when coming back up.
