Slackware :: Screen Keeps Turning Off After 10 Minutes?

Apr 27, 2010

I have actually done a bit of searching on this, but the suggested solutions either don't work or are not applicable to my setup.First, I changed the setterm link in /etc/rc.d/rc.M to be setterm -blank 0 -powersave off -powerdown 0and have xset s off in my fluxbox startup file.Nevertheless, the screen goes blank after 10 minutes. I can't figure out what is causing it and how to stop it.

Slackware :: Automating Xorg RandR Turning Laptop Screen Off If External Monitor Is Connected?

Jan 2, 2010

I have a netbook (Acer Aspire One) I'm running Slackware 13. and usually, I prefer to connect an external monitor. When I switch my machine on with the monitor connected, the display is duplicated on both screens and since I just want the netbook's screen to be off and only see the display on the external monitor, I can doxrandr --output LVDS --off

Great! However, it's a hassle to do this every time I log in and I'd like to automate the process if possible. I did some googling and I found that if you want to automate xrandr commands, you can put a script in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ (see this). I wrote the following script to automate my xrandr commands and since the Xsession.d directory didn't exist, I tried creating it. The script was called 45custom-xrandr_settings, as the one on the RandR wiki is called the same.

# Check whether the external monitor is connected

Slackware :: Wireless Radio Not Turning On?

Nov 24, 2009

I have slackware 13.0 installed on a dell latitude laptop. I am trying to get the wireless radio to turn on. But when I press the fn + f2 nothing happens( is anything suppose to happen) I tried to edit the rc.inet1.conf file to match my network settings, and then restarted it still nothing. Maybe someone could shed some light my way. I will keep reading through forums to see if I find answer. I also installed the wicd package from the slackware cd, it starts up but shows no networks. Guess the fact that my wireless radio isn't started, that is why I don't see any networks.

General :: Xubuntu Screen Keeps Turning Off?

Nov 18, 2010

the screen is still on but it's like the computer is going idle or something, It makes watching tv shows/movies pretty hard. I have to constantly keep moving the mouse. I have a pentium 4 with about 600 megs of ram. Latest version of Xubuntu.I went into screensaver options and power management options. It's set to two hours before the screensaver comes on, and never to put the screen idle but the screen seems to do it every 20-30 minutes.I'm not entirely sure where to look now, i don't think there could be anything wrong with the hardware, otherwise moving the mouse wouldn't make the screen come back on.

Ubuntu :: Power Management Screen Not Turning Off?

May 12, 2010

I have an issue where the screen on my laptop will not shut off with the power management tool. The Default Power Manager does not have an option for this.My screen will go blank after a set amount of time, but the lcd-backlight will remain on. I would want the power manager to shut the screen off completely (including turning off the lcd backlight) without shutting down the computer it-self. So the computer can continue to do what I left it to do in the case I forget to close the lid. With the screen shut off completely, will preserve the life of the back light and reduce power consumption.

Is there a better power manager app that will allow me to do this a tweak to the existing default power manager that will allow the functionality I am seeking? laptop was perfectly able to do this under a win-xp environment, so I know the machine is physically capable of doing this. Note: My WinXP OS and Ubuntu OS are on seperate physical drives so there is no dual boot issues. So when I am using one there is no trace of the other present

Fedora :: FC15 Stop Gnome From Turning Screen Off?

Jun 5, 2011

Under Gnome2 you were able to stop the OS from turning off the screen by selecting "never" as the time to turn off the display when the computer was idle. This was found under the screensaver configuration.The screen tool for Gnome3 does not offer "never" as an option. Does anyone know how to stop Fedora 15/Gnome 3 from turning off the display?

General :: Xorg DPMS Off: Keep VT From Turning Screen Back On

Mar 19, 2010

I have an embedded board with a small UPS. When AC power goes down, I need to turn off all power hungry devices in order to have a clean shutdown. First thing I do, is set DPMS to force powerdown, then go through the usual SIGTERM/SIGKILL/umount sequence. I have an Intel i915 Display adapter connected to an LVDS LCD panel.

Unfortunately, when Xorg dies, Xserver or the VT code turn the LCD panel back on.

I even tried working around it by directly poking the panel enable register in the Display chip, so that X doesn't know about it, but the panel goes back on when the VT comes back.

Is there any "legal" way of keeping the display off?

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Stays Blank After Turning Off An On?

Aug 16, 2010

I just installed Mythbuntu 10.04 and have my Sony LCD TV connected via a DVI to HDMI cable. The issue I am encountering is that everything works fine until I turn off the TV and turn it back on later, because the screen stays blank and from what the TV tells me there is no signal. I have no idea what can cause this. I checked the TV settings in terms of power saving and turned it all off. I turned off the screen saver in Ubuntu, but still the same issue. My motherboard uses the ATI HD4200 onboard graphics engine

Ubuntu :: Toshiba Laptop - Hardware - Screen Goes Blank After Few Seconds - From Turning On

Sep 16, 2010

I'd like your input on this. A toshiba laptop screen goes blank after few seconds(from turning on).

At first i thought it was fan that was out and once it got hot enough it cut the laptop off like my old Acer did.

But after close examination i noticed that it continues working. HD still spining and fan blows..

Example: Turn on>Hit F2 to go in to Bios> Bios screen appears>Before i have a chance to do anything it geos blank but continues working> I hit Cntrl ALt Del> it resets and screen comes right back up>second later it goes blank again.

ALSO the toshiba logo and whole screen seems to have a red tint to it.

I also get a media test error but that is likely from hard drive not being there during some of the tests.

DO you think it can be an LCD Backlight issue? or possibly video card?

Ubuntu :: Screen Blanks After 10 Minutes?

Dec 14, 2010

Since upgrading to 11.04, my screen goes blank if I am not active for 10 mins. This is really annoying if I'm sat on the sofa watching a movie through the computer!

The screensaver is set to 1 hour and the power management settings are set to 'never'. I never had this problem with the previous Ubuntu version. I'm on a desktop rather than a laptop.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Screen Blank Out After Few Minutes

Mar 19, 2010

I have been having an issue with my screen blanking out after a few minutes (number of minutes unknown), since I reinstalled Fedora 12 (KDE) a couple of weeks ago. I have tried, yes, a lot of things to try to set it so that it doesn't blank out, to no avail. I have spent a lot of time on the Fedora forum seeking resolution, with a variety of suggestions, all to no avail. I went into System Settings > Power Control, and fooled with things around there and they didn't work. I tried xset and dpms and shutting them off. Still no cigar.

OpenSUSE Install :: Blank Screen After 10 Minutes?

Aug 29, 2010

I have the problem (11.3) that the screen is blanked after 10 minutes (console and KDE). After some searching, I found out, it is a kernel "feature". Since it is a server, which should display network status permanently on screen this behavior is fatal.

I have tried:

- switch of power features vie Grub kernel param: apm=off, powersaved=off
- in kde via screensaver options
- in term "setterm -blank 0"

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce4 Desktop - Screen Goes Dim After 10 Minutes

Jun 9, 2015

I'm using the xfce4 desktop and I removed the default screensaver. The screen goes dim after 10 minutes and I was wanting to know if there is a config file where I can adjust the time.

Searching synaptic for "screensaver" shows xdg-utils installed which has xdg-sreensaver but I'm not sure if that is really the program that is dimming the screen. Anyway, I couldn't find a way to change the amount of time that it takes to do so.
