[SOLVED] Turn off the screen when inactive for...

Post by kevin987 » Sat Feb 24, 2018 10:21 pm

Is there a way to add a 1 minute feature to Power Management, Power Options, Turn off the screen when inactive for. The shortest time available is 5 minutes.

I'm using Cinnamon 17.3

Try this:

Install dconf-editor.

Now navigate in the left pane to org -> cinnamon -> settings-daemon -> plugins power and change those values:
sleep-display-ac and / or sleep-display-battery

dconf-editor worked. A lot of sub menus but I got the hang of it (my eyes aren't getting any younger). I may never fully explore all these options, there are so many.

Thanks Cosmo.
