how to increase time before standby mode starts

Postby hansencomputers on Wed Jun 24, 2009 3:12 pm

Greetings,
Under Power Management, the option to put the computer to sleep after a period of time has a maximum of 1 hour. I would like to increase this to 2 hours. Is there a way to do this?

Haven't done this myself but you might want to look at this:

You should be able to do this by hitting Alt-F2 and typing gconf-editor. Then navigate to /apps/gnome-power-manager/timeout. From there, you can set sleep_computer_ac and sleep_computer_battery to an arbitrary number of seconds. Though, I don't have two hours to test to see if a value of 7200 will actually work. :)
Please add a [SOLVED] at the end of your original subject header if your question has been answered and solved.
