Xfce4-power-manager

Hi there been having problems with the power manager, when I set display blank after to never, the power manager blanks my screen after about 5 mins anyway. Altered display blank after to 60 mins, still blanks after about 5 mins. Tried man page, there isn’t one. Removed said manager in pacman, rebooted, then re-installed, still blanking after about 5 mins.
Had a look at wiki couldnt find a solution there. Its probably something easy to fix, but not sure what else to try.

It looks like you don’t have the toggle switch turned on at the top right. :wink:

thanks Rick, will leave laptop for 5 mins and check it doesn’t misbehave.

Hopefully that does the trick!

the screen went blank again

Is it on battery or plugged in? You have 5 minutes on battery and never on plugged in. It is sleep after 10 minutes. Switch off after 30. Plugged in never. Have you checked the settings in the other panels? Did you check the settings under screensaver also. There is a toggle switch on that panel also for lid closed etc.
