Power Management Screen not turning off.
I have an issue where the screen on my laptop will not shut off with the power management tool. The Default Power Manager does not have an option for this.
My screen will go blank after a set amount of time, but the lcd-backlight will remain on.
I would want the power manager to shut the screen off completely (including turning off the lcd backlight) without shutting down the computer it-self. So the computer can continue to do what I left it to do in the case I forget to close the lid. With the screen shut off completely, it will preserve the life of the back light and reduce power consumption.
Is there a better power manager app that will allow me to do this or a tweak to the existing default power manager that will allow the functionality I am seeking?
My laptop was perfectly able to do this under a win-xp environment, so I know the machine is physically capable of doing this. Note: My WinXP OS and Ubuntu OS are on seperate physical drives so there is no dual boot issues. So when I am using one there is no trace of the other present.
Thanks For Any Help You All can provide!
