Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 427081
kscreensaver starts and hangs despite stand-by
Last modified: 2008-01-24 08:58:26 EST
Description of problem:
Try setting kpowersave monitor stand-by time before the time when kscreensaver
activates. For example, set monitor stand-by for 1 min and kscreensaver for 2
min. In 1 min, monitor goes into stand-by, kscreensaver immediately starts and
then freezes in just a few seconds.
Everything works fine when stand-by follows kscreensaver.
This was observed from the launch of Fedora 8 through all the updates, but I
got a handle on this only now.
all the time with illogical kpowersave and kscreensaver settings
Use logical kpowersave and kscreensaver settings. This does not mean that this
is a user's screw-up. It is a bug in kpowersave, which should prevent
kscreensaver from even starting, I guess.
After the comment in the above upstream bugreport, I agree that this is rather
a kscreensaver issue. After all kscreensaver should be able to see that the
monitor is already in stand-by and just stay quiet. This is much less trouble
than asking kpowersave and kscreensaver to negotiate their settings...
Reassigning to kscreensaver (kdebase).

Thanks, we'll continue to track this upstream.
