My display goes dark after some period of inactivity. I don’t appreciate that and want to disable this “functionality.” It’s not related to power-profiles-daemon since I removed that, without relief. I find no obvious likely causes of this unwanted behavior when looking through running processes or installed software. Can someone please point me to what might be controlling this and how I can configure it?
you may want to check configs:
and add something like this:
xset s 480 dpms 600 600 600
It is possible to turn off your monitor with the xset command which is provided by the xorg-xset package.
||Disable screen saver blanking|
||Change blank time to 1 hour|
||Turn off DPMS|
||Disable DPMS and prevent screen from blanking|
||Turn off screen immediately|
Thank you! This was really useful information that helped me solve my issue and also learn something interesting (to me, anyway) about what’s going on inside my computer.
