Power Management settings ignored

Postby dogiordano on Sat Dec 08, 2012 7:10 am

Hello everyone, I installed Mint recently for the first time and I find it very good.
Quite everything works as it sould but I have a couple of problems. I am sorry for having not found an appropriate forum category to write this.

I'm using a Linux Mint 14 - 64bit with MATE on a HP G62 notebook.
I went in Power Management Preferences and, in the tab "On AC Power", I choose the following settings:

Put computer to sleep when inactive for: Never
Put display to sleep when inactive for: Never
Set display brightness to: 100%
Dim display when idle: NOT checked

After this (and a reboot), my monitor still goes black after 10 minutes of inactivity.
I reentered the Power Management Preferences and found the settings the way I set them so they are saved somewhere but not "active" somehow.

Except for the obvious question "How to solve it?" I was wondering: "Where are the relevant files with this options?"

Thanks in advance for your help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello dogiordano and welcome to Mint.

go to Menu >Preferences > Screensaver > Power Management tab Make sure the put display to sleep when inactive for is set to never.

That should do it.

Thank you!
I didn't check yet but I'm sure that will solve my problem as it already happened to me some time ago on OpenSuse (and I forgot how I solved it meanwhile).

Anyway, I still would like to know where are this settings saved in the system so I won't mark this as solved yet.
