    can't turn power saver off!

    I'm having a really annoying problem with 12.04 that I can't seem to solve. If I leave the computer unattended for more than 10 minutes it goes into power saving mode and switches off the screen. The only way I can get back on is to log back in, which is VERY tedious. I have gone into the system setting for power and set it to 'Don't suspend', yet it keeps on doing it, so what am I doing wrong?

    Any tips would be appreciated, as I'm currently trying to use my Ubuntu-based PC to display some information I;m using for a writing project, and I either have to keep remembering to move the mouse every few minutes, or go through the log in process again to get the screen back up.

    Thanks.

    When you say log back in, do you mean just entering your password in a box about centered on the screen, ie, the lock screen? Ctrl+Alt+L would show you the lock screen, such that you can confirm whether this is what you are seeing, or whether it truly is the login screen.


    Thanks,
