Thread: KDE 4.1 display power management

    Default KDE 4.1 display power management

    Hello,
    I'm running 10.3 here, with the factory 4.1 desktop as an alternate. KDE 3.5.9 seems to turn the monitor off as expected, but KDE 4.1 does not. I've checked, and the settings are such that is should ...... No biggie, but wondered if I should enter a bug report?

    Thanks,

    I cannot confirm this bug. KDE 4.1 turns off my LCD monitor quite well. Have you enabled DPMS in SaX2?

    Hello,
    Well, I thought it was enabled, but it wasn't.

    Now it is....I'll see if that works.

    Nope,
    restarted X, and logged back in...... the monitor is still on screensaver.

    And you've enabled power management in KDE Control Panel->Display->Power Control right?

    I have the same problem. My monitor will power down but will not turn off.

    One thing I noticed at one point was that when I left the system at the login screen the monitor DID power down. However, after I logged in this did not happen. I guess it is a bug.

    For me the global DPMS settings are working if my screensaver's autostart is disabled. But in Powerdevil DPMS isn't working, this is a bug and I'm already reported it:
