    Default Powerdevil screen blanking time


    In 11.1 KDE 4, eliminating or changing the screen blanking time doesn't
    seem to do anything. Anybody have any pointers?

    YES.
    It's a pain in the ***

    Work thru all the powerdevil settings to disable any and all 'Enable
    display power management'

    Also check in edit profiles - screen
    make sure you uncheck there too

    Thanks! Hope they work on refining that for 11.2.

    As a follow-up, the setting that I had to change was in Configure
    Desktop => Display, then the Power Control Tab, then uncheck the Enable
    display power management. Until I did this, it didn't seem to matter
    what I did in Powerdevil.

    I'm reported it a long time ago, and now it seems to be fixed, more
    info:
    'Powerdevil, Lithium, Power Management - 1'
    (http://forum.kde.org/showthread.php?tid=20561),
    'Bug 178642 – powerdevil dpms doesn't start automatically'
    (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178642).

    Thanks for the update. I do wish they would issue this fix as an update
    to 11.1's KDE 4.1 so people don't have to change to KDE 4 Factory repos
    just to get working display power management.

    I don't know anything about 4.1. It'll be surely fixed in 4.2, because
    this is the latest stable version.
