    Last update killed caffeine

    I run Ubuntu 12.04 and since my last update, caffeine has not be keeping my computer awake. The icon still shows that it is on but it does nothing. My computer dims and then goes blank just like it wasn't there. How do I fix this? I need caffeine!

    Nevermind. Further tinkering found the problem. They are bleeding some of the improvements from 14.04 into 12.04 and one of those was the improved "Brightness and Lock" feature. I unchecked the box for dimming to save power, and I am back in business.
