I use KDE 4.2 on a openSUSE 11.1 installation. When I watch streaming video from a website (Hulu - Watch your favorites. Anytime. For free. for example), after about 4-5 minutes, the screen blacks out. It always happens at the most critical parts of the show!! Anyway, I checked all of the powersaving and screensaver settings. I don’t want to completely shut off the powersaving features because my desktop machine runs 24/7. I have it setup as a Media Center with MythTV. Therefore, I bumped up all of the settings I could find to 60 minutes. I still get the screen blacking out after 4-5 minutes. It seems to only happen when I’m watching media on the web. When I watch live tv or recordings on mythtv, it doesn’t black out.
Is there a setting that I’m missing? Any suggestions (other than keep the mouse at my side and jiggle it every so often rotfl! )?
I’ll take a look at those settings when I get home tonight, but I’m pretty sure that I’ve already modified those. I want to keep power management and screen saver enabled since I leave the machine running. I just want to make sure it’s “alive” for about 60 minutes before kicking in power saving mode.
If I find that those settings did not help, I’ll try to be more detailed in the next post on what I’ve already tried.
