View Full Version : [ubuntu] Power Management has no effect

May 15th, 2010, 05:12 PM

I have a laptop with 10.04 installed. When it is plugged in with AC Power, the screen fades black after a few minutes and locks up after about 10 minutes (shows a dialog for passwd when back).

This gets really annoying when listening a movie or just reading text.

System->Preferences->Power Management is set to "never" for everything.

gconf-editor->apps->gnome-power-management is set to "0" for everything finishing with *_ac.

How could I get this fixed? (Had the same problem with 9.10)

Thank you!

Same problem here. Seems to work ok with Xine but not with MPlayer
