Display goes to sleep, even though configured not too.

Hi all,

My screen goes to sleep after 5 minutes, despite the fact that I have set it not to in the power settings. Has anyone else experienced this or have a suggestion of how to fix this?
Mint 14 on Lenovo G575.

Thanks in advance,
Chris

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Nevermind,
Turns out it was caused by a screensaver set to a black screen. I just assumed it was dimming the display.
