    Question Problem with xset dpms force off

    Hello everyone

    I have intel chipset and ubuntu 9.10 (fresh install)

    when I run 'xset dpms force off' the backlight turns off but after a few seconds (30 to 120) it turns on again and is driving me crazy

    I have disabled the screensaver but it keeps doing it

    When I had 9.04 this problem doesn't happened

    Can anyone help me please?

    Regards!

    Cool Re: Problem with xset dpms force off

    so much for trying to sleep. I am on arch linux, and am experiencing the same problem after doing an upgrade.

    only happened with the last release of something within the last few days, will know more tomorrow.

    I'm seeing the same problem on Ubuntu 9.10. This didn't happen with Ubuntu 9.04.

    I have a Dell Latitude E6500 with nvidia Quadro NVS 160m graphics (using the nvidia driver version 185.18.36, from the Hardware Drivers wizard).

    I confirm the problem, this time with 9.10 on an HP HDX16 laptop with Nvidia 9600M graphics card.

    Same for me on a Thinkpad X41 with a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900.
    I have the feeling that it works when the Screensaver triggers it.

    Same problem on a Dell D820. Has this bug been reported?

    Re: Problem with xset dpms force off

    hey there,

    i have (had) the exact same problem on 9.10

    are you all on wireless connections? i realized that every time, the wireless strength meter in the network-manager changed, the display went back on... so what i did was disabling the wireless before i turned the screen black. it works now. not really a fix, but rather a workaround.

    hope this helps!

    ok, strange

    it seems kind of random now. i turned wireless back on, and it still works!

    so, i have no clue.
