How do I prevent automatic suspend/sleep/shutdown/monitor off when I’m running a WM like qtile? I’ve had a look at the ArchWiki Power Management article, and tried to control it with Xfce’s Power Management, as well as the DE independent Powerkit tool, but neither work. I made sure to add Powerkit to autorun at startup, and turned off the screensaver with
xscreensaver, but despite that the monitor still turns itself off after x minutes. It is not a hardware feature, as it has not been an issue with other DEs/WMs.
I do not need complex power management. It is a desktop computer, and I do not want it to auto suspend, shutdown, or turn off its monitor unless I tell it to. How can I achieve this when software rules do not seem to be respected?
