Description Andrew Hecox 2009-03-12 16:40:23 UTC
from F11 test day, DPMS does not work -- there's no obvious failure, the screen power management just never kicks in.

On my machine (GMA4500, i965, deviceID 0x2a42), power management does kick in, but much later than it should. E.g. after about 15 minutes instead of after 6 minutes as it should. The exact time seems however to be random.

This could be the same issue.

Comment 5 Andrew Hecox 2009-03-12 17:50:43 UTC
this worked when I was on battery, but did not work on AC. I confirmed that I set the '6 minutes' under AC, not battery.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
