Prevent sleep mode [SOLVED]

Postby flanna on Fri May 18, 2012 5:21 am

I use my computer to display pictures that I am painting. I never want the screen to time out / sleep / go blank. How can I set it to stay on? Can I do this without having to hack anything with the terminal?

I know that there other threads that deal with this but they involve "terminal hacking" techniques. I just want to do this with standard settings, if it's possible.

you can try this.
in the menu go system tools > system settings > Brightness and Lock > look in the setting that says Turn screen off if inactive for ___ Mins.
set that to Never.
see if that will work for you.
