[kubuntu question][SOLVED] lock screen comes on during video playback

Post by Snafu » Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:20 am

When watching video the lock screen comes on. How do I stop this occurring? I know I've seen a thread about this issue before but can't find it now.

I would have asked there if I hadn't been blocked from the kubuntu forum. Apparently they consider me a spammer even though I've only posted there twice.

Hi Snafu,
I have to admit that I haven't been using my Kubuntu 18.04 that much, but do you think it can have something to do with the settings in "Energy Saving"?

I suppose that's one of the ironies of life, doing the wrong thing at the right moment -C.C.

Have you tried watching video with VLC? That's included in Kubuntu 18.04.
