Cinnamon power settings?

Postby Alix » Sat Dec 01, 2012 8:28 am

Hi folks
In Mint14 with Cinnamon I want to change the default time before the screen switches off and goes to black.
Can someone tell me where to find the power settings?

Thanks
Alix

Menu -> Power
Menu -> Brightness and Lock
(terminal: gnome-control-center)

If it still interrupts vlc, try Tools -> Preferences -> All -> Advanced -> "Inhibit the power management daemon during playback."

Jeeze......I spent a good half hour clicking round and never found that. It definitely needs renaming.

Thanks mockturtl
