Description Rodd Clarkson 2006-12-06 06:14:56 UTC
Description of problem:

When the screen is asleep and the power cord is unplugged, the screen should
remain in sleep mode to conserve battery life.

I know this is nit-picking.

Obviously it's not such and issue if the screen wakes when the cord is plugged in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wait for you screen to go to sleep (you need a laptop)
2. unplug the power cord.

Actual results:

Screen wakes up.

Expected results:

Screen could remain asleep until the user does something a little more obvious
to wake the screen (like hit a key)

Additional info:

I know it's pedantic, but battery life is precious and every little bit counts.

This is still a problem with f8.

Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2008-05-30 11:28:17 UTC
I totally disagree, the screen should light up to indicate that the power has
been interrupted. It's an event after all.
