Description Gabriel Ramirez 2010-02-16 02:28:52 EST
Description of problem:
n my netbook I have my screensaver to kick in 14 minutes require a password in

I set powerdevil to manage screen powersaving

in Profiles I set (Performance and Powersaving) the Screen tab to:

Suspend after 16 minutes
Power off after 17 minutes

at first powerdevil works correctly suspending and powering off the screen
 I go back to the computer type the password but 
after few times of: 

-the computer idle for 14 minutes
-suspending screen
-poweringoff screen
-type the password

(sometimes after 24 hours of using the computer in the above cycle) the screen don't suspend nor
power off instead the screensaver remains

so when I notice which the screensaver remains,  I switch profiles to
powersaving and going back to perfomance, and powerdevil is able to manage the
screen again for a few times more, but some time after the screensaver remains

so my workaround is when I will know which I leave the machine for a while,
before I leaveI switch the profiles to powersaving and back to performance to
be sure which powerdevil will manage the screen powersaving


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


How reproducible:
always , only give a day to be sure to happes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set the powerdevil profiles as above in the description
2. wait to the computer be idle and poweroff the screen
3.type password
4. work with the computer some time
 5. go to step 2. 

Actual results:

after a while the screen saver will remain and the screen will not power off

Expected results:
power off the screen  always which the computer is idle for more of 17 minutes

Please don't close the regressions on our kde-4.4 (or qt46) tracker as UPSTREAM, we'd really like to track those particular bugs in Fedora.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2010-02-19 09:44:21 EST
This isn't necessarily a regression nor reproducible (yet).
Comment 5 Orion Poplawski 2010-02-23 13:22:43 EST
I think I'm seeing this as well.
Comment 6 Kevin Kofler 2010-02-27 21:18:41 EST
Thank you for taking the time to report this issue to us. As we decided this issue is not a blocker for our 4.4 update and as this bug is already reported upstream, we are going to close it as UPSTREAM.

We will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker,
and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future

Thank you for the bug report.
