How to control when laptop goes to sleep? SOLVED

Post by freshtamatic »

I am on MATE. I tried the power settings and set it to 30 minutes on both AC and battery but it does nothing. The computer goes to sleep after about 5 minutes. How can I change that?

Have you checked your screensaver and lockscreen settings in Menu/Screensaver?

I had not. I moved it from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, I hope it fixes it!
