[SOLVED] Screen keeps going black after 10 minutes ...

Postby visk on Fri Feb 12, 2010 5:19 pm

Hi!
It's weird, the screen of my laptop with mint 8 keeps turning black after 10 minutes if I don't do any action, even if I've set on the power management tab
"put my computer to sleep when inactive" "never"
and
"put display to sleep when inactive for" "1 hour"
"dim display when idle" "off"
on both AC power and battery tabs...

any idea why? :?

Not sure if it's the same thing as you're getting, but have a look at the posts by Husse near the end in this thread http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=37947&hilit=screen+black
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
