View Full Version : [ubuntu] Monitor off after 30 minutes

August 20th, 2009, 07:28 PM
My monitor turning off after 30 minutes with no activity even when after I disable the "Put display to sleep when inactive" in Power Management.
Is there other flag that I need to turn off?

Try System > Preferences > Screensaver.

That was the source of monitor turning off in my case.

That is the problem, the "Power Management" that you get from the System->Preferences->Screensaver not working for me...

after updating to 2.6.28-15-generic kernel my gnome power-management apparently does not work at all. changing any setting within it does nothing but i can still set things using
# xset
commands. dpms is on etc. use
# xset q
to see current settings.
can set suspend time etc. using xset commands... can not do so using gnome power-management - anybody know what the deal is here? is it the kernel update?
