screen save-power save control on Mint12, Debian Cinnamon?

Postby gychang on Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:14 pm

I have Mint connected to my HDTV and when I watch web video, it turns dark every 15min or so and have to enter my password again, is there a way to have control of screen save, power save feature?

thanks in advance.

Click the main menu button, find Control Center, and under Personal you'll find Screensaver and many other useful things.
Have fun! :)

I think it is System Settings -> Brightness and Lock.

Here. Simply open the cinnamon menu and search for System Settings, then choose Brightness and Lock. Or you can search for Brightness and Lock directly from the menu.
