Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 198017
Screen Blanking in KDE 3.5.3 cannot be disabled
Last modified: 2008-04-10 10:15:27 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrade to KDE 3.5.3, screen blanking cannot be disabled. Blanking begins
in approx 20 Min's. (DPMS disabled in xorg.conf) (kcmdisplayrc present and
properly updated via Display Power Managment module).
Must be 3.5.3 related, roll back to 3.5.2 corrects issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always and Forever
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade KDE to 3.5.3
2. From Display Power Managment Module -> Enable Power Managment -> Drag All
Sliders to 0 -> Apply -> Disable Power Managment -> Apply -> Verify kcmdisplayrc
3. Logout and restart KDE (for good measure), Lock session, wait 20 Min's
Very strange, seems some people I have spoken with can get this working through
toggling Display Power settings, while others can't.
