Can't get hibernation off and Firefox issues

Post by manofmany »

Turned everything to NEVER in Power Management, but the computer still goes blank. Is there a screensaver or something else that is causing this?

Also, when it comes back from the black screen, Firefox will not pull up URLs as I begin to type them. I have to restart it. Firefox also will not let me fill in forms such as registering on this forum. It highlights the first letter and overwrites it. I can't get more than one letter at a time.

I have the same problem. Nothing I do in Power management in the Control Center seems to change what the computer is doing.

EDIT: D'oh! It's a simple fix. Just tweak the Screensaver settings in the CC, as noted in this earlier thread (which I missed):
