View Full Version : [SOLVED] Disable stand-by
May 23rd, 2010, 04:30 PM
I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and now if I leave my computer inactive for 5 minutes it goes black and then I have to enter my password. This is really annoying when I am streaming videos or watching movies. I have gone through all the admin and preferences and can't find how to turn this off or even how to change the time for going into stand-by. I would expect it to be in the power management but it isn't there.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have changed all the options in power management to never and it still keeps doing it.

Oh ok, then there is a problem somewhere, maybe with permissions or I don't know. I don't know which file controls that.

Okay I figured it out. I was missing the screen saver option under system preferences. But in the screen saver it let's you choose the time before the computer is considered idle.
