  1. #1

    Default Monitor Sleep

    Where are the settings to stop my monitor going to sleep after 4 minutes, eg I want to watch a DVD or something?

    Thanks.

    OpenSuse 11.1 and I think it has KDE. Pretty sure. Amarok says something about KDE.

    Ok, I can't find the third thing to do that you wrote, but it appears to be alright.

    I have power devil on still, however, I left it on to perhaps conserve power?

    But I did change screensaver from 4m to 60m.

    Is that going to have the desired effects? As in, not touching it for 60m will have it playing a DVD without me having to hit the mouse pad etc?

    Powersave seems something I should keep on.

    Is that ok?

    Powerdevil is always on, you just mean powersaving. As for the 3rd part of the detail I gave you, it may depend if you are using an older version of kde4 (likely as I use Factory). But I'm sure it should be there. IIRC it was way back when I was using kde4.1.3
    Just look for the Display section somewhere in the Desktop Confid area. I can do screen by screen shots if you need.
