Probably. It's not a pressing matter. Just a feature I'd like to see expanded upon. Who else uses LMDE on production systems?
Use dconf-editor, I'm assuming it's available in the LMDE repos. Or alternatively gsettings in the command line

The timeouts in the background are set in dconf in seconds and can be whatever you like.

I see what you're saying sdibaja, but in my experience the Mint 18.3, 19 releases, etc feel more experimental than LMDE, which is not all the time adding the features dumped into those point releases. With each point release I couldn't tell what small changes were coming until I installed it and noticed I no longer had xscreensaver installed by default, etc.

LMDE, by comparison, seems vastly less experimental, if only for the lack of new features being constantly introduced, and the regressions that come with them.

I don't like the inclusion of certain elements in 19, for example, and LMDE just isn't forcing that crap on me.

how did you get that GUI format to come up?
I installed dconf-editor, but it is a plain vanilla format that explains nothing.

The look is just my theme....

To get to that page of the GUI you need to click through the items until you get to the key of interest.

yes,
once you understand what it is you are looking at, lots of tweaks that just aren't available in the teeny little Power GUI that comes up with I click on the Battery Icon

...and just for fun... LMDE3 was approved for stable release today... although it is not on any of the mirrors yet it should be coming to a mirror near you in the near future... :mrgreen:

Edit: 10:10am EDT - on home mirror and 4 US mirrors...

so if we already had it loaded, and it is up todate we should be okay now? :D

Probably... but I never put anything important (important information or data) on a BETA installation & always wipe the BETA and install the stable release in its place when the stable becomes available... but that's just me... :mrgreen:

seems there is a bit left on the punch list... note that a number of the closed issues are actually unresolved.
