Thread: Can't cancel screensaver initiation until after screen dims

    Default Can't cancel screensaver initiation until after screen dims

    Hello all,
    I'm running openSUSE 11.3 with an Intel GM965 on-board video card.
    After upgrading xorg-x11-server to 7.5_1.9.0-62.2.x86_64 from Index of /repositories/X11:/XOrg/openSUSE_11.3/x86_64 after a suggestion to fix a different problem, I noticed that the screensaver seems to work fine as mentioned above. However, I've noticed now that when the screen starts to dim before applying the actual screensaver I apparently can't cancel the screensaver initiation until after the screen finishes dimming (that is, goes completely black) and the screensaver actually starts. No amount of mouse gestures, clicks or key strokes will cancel the screensaver once the screen starts to dim until the screensaver itself starts running. Anybody else have this problem or know how to fix it? Or is this a bug?

    For whatever reason today the screensaver started behaving itself. Go figure....
    Let's see if it holds up...

    Started up again. Same as before. Nothing changed. No idea what's going on. Anybody have any ideas?

    Bump.
    Can anybody else tell me at least if they've ever had the same problem?
