I didn’t find the answer by myself. This is my first post here. Hope someone can help me.
So, I installed EndeavourOS with XFCE several days ago and tried to watch a movie using Celluloid.
My disappointment was when I realized that on battery my laptop keeps switching off display after each 5 minutes of not moving a mouse. Sound keeps running.
I tried to find out how to prevent XFCE from switching off my display when Celluloid is playing media, but couldn’t find a solution.
So, if you know how to prevent display from switching off when Celluloid is working, I’ll be glad to hear your ideas.
A little offtopic, but related to the issue:
The display is keep working on a plug, when battery is not using.
I tried to set Power Settings to Never for Display off, Suspend and so on, but it hasn’t helped.
There is a package called
caffeine-ng in the AUR that keeps the display ON and prevents it from sleeping.
If you want to install it to try it out: (you might have to select 1 when you choose to install it)
yay -S caffeine-ng
Here’s their github for more info if you’re curious:
And here is the AUR page I’d recommend reading briefly before installing and if you like it enough, consider giving it a vote!
Also a quick side note, IF you have
tlp installed you might have to disable that since it sets certain parameters when on battery mode to limit draining the battery.
I’m not OP but that’s really cool. My display was always shutting off when I played games on Retroarch with a controller.
I believe this is the most simple solution. I’ve checked, it’s worked.
