Comment 1 Electron 2009-04-28 18:11:48 UTC
I confirm, the problem appears with the gnome-power-manager-2.26.1-2.fc11

Comment 2 Mike Chambers 2009-04-28 22:21:58 UTC
Seeing same problem as well here on 64bit.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2009-04-29 16:32:05 UTC
Only on battery ? Or also on AC ?

Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2009-04-29 16:40:27 UTC
I only see it on battery. Not a blocker though, moving to F11Target

Comment 5 Electron 2009-04-29 20:16:59 UTC
For me, on AC (desktop with CRT monitor).

Comment 6 Luckis P 2009-04-29 23:15:55 UTC
Almost same issue here though for me, gnome-power-manager puts screen to sleep after 1 - 2 minutes.
For me it doesn't do it on "Never" but even with "real time"!
I suggest we move it back to F11 blocker!
I attached a txt from running 
gnome-power-manager --verbose

Comment 8 Luckis P 2009-04-29 23:38:46 UTC
Ok sorry my mistake, i thought it was set to 2hours but it turns out it was set to NEVER. I am too on AC and i too have gnome-power-manager-2.26.1-2.fc11

happens to me too, on AC power on a desktop system.

Comment 11 Paul W. Frields 2009-05-01 16:11:30 UTC
And me, on AC power on a laptop.  IIRC, the bug's assignee is away right now, but should return next week some time.  If someone wants to come up with a patch in the meantime, super.

putting back to blocker, as mclasen says he doesn't mind. we shouldn't really release with a bug like this that many people will be affected by.

Comment 14 Kyle McMartin 2009-05-02 02:07:41 UTC

Care to try this scratchbuild and see if it fixes the issue?

Patch is at:

Comment 15 Adam Williamson 2009-05-02 05:30:23 UTC
Seems to be working here. I re-set the sliders to 'never', confirmed that it then goes black after a minute or so, replaced the package (you forgot to actually bump the revision counter, btw), killed gnome-power-manager, ran it from a console, re-ran gnome-power-preferences and checked the sliders were still at "never", closed g-p-p, waited a few minutes...no blackout.

I'll reboot now to confirm it still behaves properly from a clean boot.

Comment 16 Adam Williamson 2009-05-02 06:04:05 UTC
still looking good - rebooted and let it sit beyond the point it'd normally have blacked out, and it's fine.

I tend to leave my system turned on with the monitor switches turned off overnight, then in the morning I switch 'em on and the display is still there, so I'll know if that test passed by tomorrow morning. but looks good so far.

Comment 17 Remi Collet 2009-05-02 08:14:41 UTC
Also working for me.

Even if scratch build still in Release 2 (should be 3)

Comment 18 Richard Hughes 2009-05-06 15:39:02 UTC
Could somebody please test the packages here please: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1338633

If they work, I'll request a tag. Thanks.

Comment 19 Adam Williamson 2009-05-06 16:21:36 UTC
will do.

btw, I should note, I'm not testing any *other* cases. I'm not testing, for example, if power management actually works - setting it to time out after 10 minutes and see if it does. I'll try and do that too, but just to note it.
