Description of problem:
DPMS still effective, despite switched to "never" gnome-power-managermanager
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm $HOME/.gconf* (when your are not Logged into gnome)
so you have fresh configuration (and no "gconfd" running)
2. Log into Gnome and open g-p-m and Set "Put display to sleep when computer is inactive for" to "Never"
3. Now in g-s-s, Un-Check the tickbos "Activate screensaver when computer is idle" and Put the slider "Regard the computer as idle after" to 44 minutes (this value should be more than DPMS value)
4. log out / log in into gnome
after 20 minutes DPMS power saver will switch off the screen
DPMS should not trigger as g-s-s is set to value 44mins.
1. The xset q will show "1200 1800 2400" as DPMS timeouts
2. when g-s-s timeout value reaches, the dpms value sets to "0 0 0"
I noticed that the DPMS is triggered even though my desktop is not in idle. After I use my mouse or keyboard the monitor is enabled again. Still weird.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Closing this case due to lack of feedback regarding a test package.
