I have not seen a place to put suggestions, so please move this to the proper spot if necessary.
I know the developers do not read the forums very much.

Lucid Lynx - I want to suggest that power management allow for you to enter the number of
minutes to control when the turn the monitor off and when to put the computer to sleep.
It would be nice to enter an integer between 1 and 60 on both.

I like my screensaver to kick in at 10 minutes and monitor to go to sleep after 20 minutes and the system to go to sleep after 30 minutes.

I guess just the time when the Monitor goes to sleep needs to have a "20 minute" option and that would make me happy. :smile:
As the other 2 already have the above mentioned options.

Thank you very much for listening! And Lucid is THE Best OS!

you can already do this in screen saver settings and power management.

There is no ability to set the monitor to sleep at 20 minutes and being able to enter an integer would be nice too.
