    Default KDE power management?

    Since switching from Gnome to KDE4, my monitor keeps blanking after 10 minutes or so. I've gone through Desktop settings > Advanced > Power Management and can't find anything that would encourage this behaviour. Tried the "Display" tab but that just crashes.
    This doesn't happen in Gnome or Xfce so it must be something KDE-specific. Are there some hidden settings I could use? Looked at sysconfig in Yast but couldn't find anything promising.
    It's not a showstopper as a mouse/keyboard movement makes the thing spring back to life but it's annoying and prevents the screensaver from kicking in.

    That was quick :-)
    Config Desktop > Display crashes, unfortunately.

    ... or alternatively, when I just tried it now, simply doesn't start.

    No, 4.2.3. I don't mind hand-editing a configuration file if I knew which one...

    Dude.
    Ever been to a sewage farm. They have containers full of brown smelly stuff.

    You just fell in one!

    Seriously what the heck are all those! Yikes man!

    No wonder your system is unstable.


    all you need is:
    oss
    non-oss
    updates
    Packman

    kde 42 desktop
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/42/openSUSE_11.1

    kde 42 community
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE_42

    Mozilla (if you must)

    after doing that do a system wide unconditional update.
    Maybe you will be OK.
