Power management config files location

Post by vansloneker » Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:35 am

I am looking for the power management config files. Not the power management tool from the menu, but the location of the config files so that I can edit these by hand. Searched everywhere, tried google, could not find them.
Unless stated otherwise Mint 18.3-64 XFCE

You will probably have to work out exactly what system you want to mess with the power settings for then search on that. Alternatively, do a file contents search in /etc for 'power'.

There was a time every had to be done by editing config files and less savvy people -like me- were begging for graphical interfaces and now that I need to find one it can't be found!

Thanks for the reply catweazel but I didn't find it. Only thing I found on the internet is /etc/default/acpi-support but this can't be it because

Code: Select all

# Comment this out to disable screen locking on resume
LOCK_SCREEN=true
and on this system screen is not locked on resume just as I had set it by the Power Manager.

It is however a setting I am looking for, disable the default locked screen but from outside the not running operating system.
