    screen and system not blanking after update

    so I have been doing the software update' thing daily and besides downloading 2 or 3 firefoxes 24.1mb each it fixed my intel gfx glitches (new driver?) but my laptop no longer blanks the screen after 10 minutes of no use.


    This is critical for me as I just leave my laptop playing music etc so having the screen/system not going into stand by is merde.


    any way to fix it?

    in system settings everything checks ok in power

    I don't have a fix, but I can confirm that I have the same problem on my nVidia-powered desktop box.

    Actually, I've experienced three variations:
    1. Sometimes the display never blanks.
    2. In another session, it will blank, as soon as I quit moving the mouse.
    3. At other times, it blanks normally.

    Anyway, It doesn't appear to be specific to laptops and/or Intel video drivers, if that helps.

    I'm glad you're having the same problems as that means it will be fixed as it's just not my hardware

    here's what I further noticed:


    even when I ask for it not to ask me for a password when locking the screen, it still does.


    I have it to blank the screen at 10 minutes of no use and then leave firefox playing the youtube playlist

    it works

    if I do the same with chromium, it doesn't



    cool new forums btw
